Sound & Vision: Mélodie Mousset

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Sound & Vision presents two virtual reality works by Mélodie Mousset: HanaHana ?? and Sing a Jellyfish. These experiences invite us to enter a world of digital synesthesia that blurs our sense of body and mind.

HanaHana ?? (Japanese: "blooming, flower") takes its name and inspiration from the manga One Piece in which a character has the infinite power to sprout body parts thanks to the magic of the Hana Hana no Mi "devil fruit." Like the devil fruit, VR gives players these extraordinary abilities, and an opportunity to explore emotions through immersion into digital bodies. 200,000 players have "bloomed" more than 1 million hands across 60 exhibitions, all persisting in the experience of the world. Through the human hand -- a source of creation and destruction -- Mousset invites us into a liminal space that breaks down boundaries between self and technology.

Sing a Jellyfish is an iteration of a new collaborative work by Mousset and Edo Fouilloux that invites audiences to dive into the deep water of their consciousness in a mesmerizing, interactive VR soundscape. In a dream-like state underwater, players encounter a ghostly marine creature, a glowing jellyfish beckoning for players to sing through them. The jellyfish are controlled and animated with the pitch, vibration and intensity of the player's voice, creating a surreal choir of the self. This art-experience provokes a state of self-hypnosis by visualizing the voice through immersive technology. Directed by Mélodie Mousset and Edo Fouilloux, produced by Morten Thorning.

Melodie Mousset's HanaHana is presented in partnership with CCS Paris (October 27, 2019 - February 2, 2020) and with the Swiss Institute in Rome's Festival Virtual Reality Experience - VRE (November 5-9, 2019).
