Interfacing emotions

Media installation

exonemo (SEMBO Kensuke / AKAIWA Yae) [Japan]

Outline

An installation comprising a mass of cables spread across the floor and three works involving pairs of monitors. The monitor-based work has at its center Kiss, or Dual Monitors, a piece in which two monitor screens are faced together to appear as if kissing each other. In conjunction with the underfoot instability created by the cables, the work serves to pose questions regarding information devices and interfacing.
