I just don’t know what to do with myself. Grégory Chatonsky. 2007.

Interactive installation
N°2/3

About the installation:
* I Just Don't Know What to Do with Myself is a series of devices on fingerprints. The fingerprint is an image that each of us carries on us. This is all about diverting its common use, the identification, and coming up with an unpredictable transformation. An interactive installation enables the visitor to scan his fingerprint and to see its image evolve in time. The fingerprints drift and break like icebergs on an ocean limited by the screen. Acrylic laser engravings reflect shadows of a fingerprint on the walls, almost invisible on the material engraving surface.
Programmation / Software: Stéphane Sikora
