"PUBLIC (S)HELL" (2013) 

 

- interactive public space installation -

 

Public (s)hell was something like an INTERNET themepark. Each of the 8 installations dealing with a different facet, danger or misuse of the world wide web and its applications. The central bloc contained 2 optical theaters, directly inspired by the works of Pierrick SORIN, Bruno COHEN and Emile Reynaud. During the opening of the exhibition, it hosted a hidden performance, named "PAS DE RESEAU", conceived by Marc PIERRARD and performed by the belgian artist Russel B.  (details here)

 

Like the internet... this work kept growing over the duration of the exhibition. Each week, new elements or details were added.
