The interactive artwork " Ecorces" invites to virtually hollow out memories and layers inside the flesh of wood. The notion of "écorces" (barks) refers to the skin of the tree as well as to the skin of the human body, as a surface of appearance, at the same time protective and fragile.
Bodyprint and handprint's heat of the spectator reveals, makes visible and audible.
The heat from the breath also reveals sonorous matters from various interactive zones of this piece of wood.
The wood surface is like a matrix of coordinates. Different combinations of interactions influence sonorous variations of sequences in a polyphonic composition.
Woodfibres of this wood sheet (mapple veneer) are sublimated through a virtual and luminous videoprojection. Heat contacts of spectators leave sonorous and luminous traces. This relation with wood reveals video sequences of bubbling matters (water from river, fluids, blazing fire ..) which evokes the fluid movements of of what seems frozen. Each heatprint allows to animate a possible memory of the wood.
Actions of the audience awake musicality and virtual light. Each heatprint with the wood generates an evanescent light which looks like a flame, a combustion.
The hearth of light is created by the heat of spectators. When nobody touches the sculpture, this one is extinguishing slowly, with the evaporation of visual and sonorous matters.
