Les paysages qui nous séparent

Interactive screen [processing + arduino]
This piece started from my experience traveling on the HSR train that links
Nancy, my hometown, to Marseille, where I studied. During the trip, I wait
to disembark at the train station and move into action. It represents the in­
between, a time dedicated to indecision. Thus, time is stretched and space
is compressed forming a fold. Bernard Stiegler explains in Technique and
Time, the coinciding between the flow of film and the flow of the viewer’s
consciousness. What would happen if we could slow down that train’s speed?
I transposed my trip into an interactive video device, Which enables the
viewer to control the video speed, and amounts to playing with the speed of
his or her trip.
