Communication and Experience work-in-progress exhibition: MACHINE GURNING

It’s clear we’re malfunctioning. The love affair we’ve had with technology is well beyond the honeymoon period, and we’re stuck in a dreary relationship.

Priscillia Chauveau

What’s your project about in a nutshell?

My project is about music, objects and interaction. I called it “From digital to analogue”. It is working on different levels. It is looking at materiality, sound and layers. When I was doing my project, my main common thread was experimentation. My show is about challenging the vision, the hearing and the feelings of my audience. It should be a participative show, performed by spectators. Continue reading “Found in Translation: Priscillia Chauveau”
