Montréal, January 2010
Each day, we are surrounded by seemingly insignificant objects, taking them from one place to the other, or leaving them on a table for weeks, without paying any attention to them. We ignore or forget them, using things only when we need to, making sure they don’t interfere or inhabit our space. But what if they were not so stable and subservient? What if they could swivel, bounce or even fly. And what if they did so all at the same time? We want to imagine a place where objects could live and move, harmoniously, and of their own accord. Without interfering with each other these objects would bounce, roll, turn and cross each other’s paths.
This experiment is about re-discovering our daily surroundings. This is the making of the interactive video that was originally made for If You Could Collaborate exhibition.
This video is the making of the interactive film where each object is assigned to a letter on the keyboard, and can be activated or deactivated at any time. To learn more about our process and to play with this interactive desk, go to www.dansedance.com
