Digital Realities #2 is a codesign installation composed by a sculpture of the iranian artist Ali Honarvar and two projections of a realtime 3d view of the sculpture by the french artist Antonin Jousse. This work questions the notion of cultural rereading and distortion of information by digital media. The scultpure is built from iranien patterns and vegetal forms. The digital system is built from a infrared camera who try to analyze the sculpture in realtime and a program who construct a picture with this view. What he can not see is completed in the image by patterns drawn from an image database. These images are iranian patterns (fabrics, carpets, architecture, etc.) and textures of the sculpture.
This project studies the limits of computer and media vision: limits of memory (database) and limits of analyze of pictures. The installation offers an aesthetic vision of a digital misunderstanding.
Digital realities #2 is produced by Espace Croisé, Roubaix and curated by Shabnam Rahimian who develop a large project of artistic exchange between France and Iran (the first version of this creation was developed in this project).
