FilmGate Interactive
Media Festival #07



An interactive film.

The fiction unfolds through three simultaneous video feeds, each one mimicking a social media live feed.

At any time, the user can drag his finger across the screen to switch from one feed to another.

Between the panic of the moment, the comments from followers, and the occasional loss of signal, the viewer is immersed in the ow of wide-ranging sources of information that flood our perception of reality whenever such an attack occurs.

ANTIBODIES is an interactive experience in the form of a never-ending video call. Participants only show up and do not have to say anything. Anyone can join at any time and all contributions are accepted.

The experience uses the webcam to track the face of participants and record their face gestures.

The project was commissioned by la maison de la culture ahuntsic, in Montréal (Canada), to replace an exhibition of 3 interactive installations by the same artist.
