The device designed as part of the exhibition «This Space Between You and Me» is deployed as an installation with multiple ramifications. At its center, like an heart around which a network of plastic arteries is connected, a resin tank feeds the various «organs». A metaphor for a body in which living and technical units co-operate, this autonomous environment articulates the notion of space separating the other from itself, as its title indicates. The expression can then be invested with various interpretations: who is the other here? And who’s talking? The machine, the man, or this vegetable cyborg, invading all the space? Everything remains open.The texts circulating on the screens will offer an initial response and may help us to imagine, outside the pessimistic horizons too easily predictable, how to reinvest the notion of empathy in an almost already present future.
