Données Noires



Our current forms of communication are strongly affected by the evolution of technology and especially by the appearance, in 2007, of the first smartphones and the ensuing development of numerous communication applications. DONNÉES NOIRES is an interactive installation that aims to question the way we communicate.

The user can plug in their iphone through a slot in the plinth. When they receive a communication (call, sms, facebook notification, whatsapp, email etc.) the black balloon hanging on the metal tube, starts to inflate automatically. Depending on the quantity of received data, it explodes more or less rapidly. This explosion symobolizes the overload of communication passing through the Iphone.
