Paysage sonore artificiel, réseaux de neurones, forum et wiki
Is it a dead world or a future world? Impromptu archaeologists, we try to recover its rules despite the strangeness of it all. The only clue to this world to be revealed: an aural landscape. Just as the archaeologist digs and explores the imperfect image printed in the earth of a world that no longer exists, so we have the responsibility of re-inhabiting this landscape, of writing its history. By generating a form, the computer produces a space to be occupied, and even exhausted.
The artificiality of the landscape appears. Does this artifice abolish its nature as a clue? What do we learn about the heritage of the digital in our practices?
By questioning what has happened, we raise the question of what will be built. Lost sounds may be hidden in this landscape, as much as sounds to be invented.
Installation, as an approach to documentary, opens up as a system for experimentation, between staging and the freedom of the actors. For this “wiki” to exist, we naturally put in place a methodology of collaborative writing. We therefore describe a hypothetical world: our own, were it not for its science-fictionality.
