Interfacing emotions

Media installation

exonemo (SEMBO Kensuke / AKAIWA Yae) [Japan]


An installation comprising a mass of cables spread across the floor and three works involv- ing pairs of monitors. The monitor-based work has at its center Kiss, or Dual Monitors, a piece in which two monitor screens are faced to- gether to appear as if kissing each other. In conjunction with the underfoot instability cre- ated by the cables, the work serves to pose questions regarding information devices and interfacing.
