Musée de l’Homme
The consortium Active Creative Design / Emmanuel Mâa Berriet / Pôle Nord Studio took over six multimedia installations as part of the renovation of the Museum of Man. ACD, who coordinated the whole operation, intervened directly on 4 projects.
The « all different » artwork takes place in the permanent exhibition of the Musée de l’Homme, Paris. It is presented as an interactive showcase featuring two screens and a real-time capture system of the body of the visitors. It offers, through a playful and interactive approach, to become familiar with the issues of genetics by answering a simple question: Where come from our genetic differences?
The game consists of seven phases, during which two players must place their body, captured in real time, inside of a graphic silhouette displayed on the screen. When they reach this objective, the silhouette becomes the photograph of the person which they reproduce the position: Indian dancer, south american young boy or man of the desert …
At the end of each game phase, a scientific animation comes deepen the concept incarnated by the two photographs. Each movie consists of a concise text completed with a graphic animation based on the use of balls embodying genetic diversity.
