Designed to exist autonomously or as part of a performance Eve 2050: The Installation features alternative scenarios to the web series on three interactive holographic panels and two sculptures. Set up in a gallery, the panels generate five digital environments that show five facets of Eve, inviting visitors to discover her world.
Projected onto the transparent panels are images of Eve blended with images of the spectators and performers present. These images are filmed, processed and projected in real time, making visitors part of Eve’s story as they play with their own reflections in the virtual mirrors. The interactive devices take visitors into a parallel world. As they explore the space, they trigger sounds emitted by invisible cones. No two people trigger the same sound. Visitors create their own narration through the paths they choose and the surfaces they touch. Each experience is unique. When the dancers are in the installation, the primal body and body of the future are brought together in a dance where living and virtual become entangled to the point of being indistinguishable. The space of the installation, enchanted by dance and technology, invites visitors to become actors in the story of Eve 2050, the narrative thread of an intimate, sensorial and poetic experience.
