Lights Contacts is an interactive artwork perceptible by two people or more. It proposes an original and interactive staging among spectators’ bodies, which are transformed into real sonorous human instruments. In a poetic way, we invite spectators to question their perceptions of each other. A small interactive shiny ball composes this artwork. A first person is invited to put his hand on it. When in contact with this shiny ball, his body becomes sensitive and reactive to other living bodies. If the person remains alone, nothing happens, there is no reaction. He must invite another person to touch him. Each touch generates variable sounds and lights that evolve according to the proximity of the contacts and spectators.
