accompanying the project " Echarpe communicante "
The communication clothing is an interface acting as a link to the virtual
world of modern communication, internet, mobile phone, and other satellite
The presentation of this project into an exhibition space necessitates
the fact that the visitor understands at the same time the visible object,
the clothing and its working and its invisible relationship with the
is why we imagined a specific scenography to put in scene the duality
of this clothing to link it to the more realistic and objective vision,
but also to make visible the complexes connections with numerical virtuality.
The space is divides in two parts, one representing the tangible reality,
and the other one rendering visible the virtual reality. A glass divides
these two parts. The Clothing worn by a mannequin faces the public.
A few meters behind, the glass is used as a projection surface to the
video representing the virtual world, the imaged communication, the
implication of the clothing as an interface between the daily reality
and the numerical virtual world. The projected image will then work
as a kind of virtual shadow of the clothing, the two objects face each
other, the one in its materiality, allowing a direct identification,
the other one that is immaterial will be subject to multiple transformations.
The visitor will move into this space to perceive its different facets
and to nourish his vision of one of the aspect with the other and vice
This scenography puts in space the invisible space created by the project
of communication clothing and its numerous possibilities and retranscripts
the working sphere it contains virtually.
