SynesTV, interactive audio-visual installation, 2011

Synesthesia is a neurological phenomenon in which two or more senses are associated. This work’s main idea is to invert senses, to visualize auditive variations and hear visual variations from the televisual live stream. SynesTV offers a purely stimulatory interpretation of the TV stream, devoid of informative content.

SynesTV invites the viewer to settle comfortably in a couch facing a TV then switch channels to get bombed by audiovisual stimuli. The evolution of the piece depends on the viewers’ navigation through the TV program.

Mathias Isouard is a young sound and visual artist recently graduated from the Fine Art School of Aix-En-Provence (ESAA). His work uses different mediums — drawing, sculpture, sound, performance and computer programming — to investigate the sensitive relationship between body and architecture, subject and environment. His transformations of space and situation operate in such a way that they encourage exploration thus the visiting public are simultaneously spectator and subject, involved through feedback processes in the functioning of the artwork itself.
