LE BLEU DU CIEL
Two computers, one located in Tourcoing and the other in Toulon, were connected by telephone. They calculated in real time the average of the colours in the northern and southern skies.
The same planetary interactive installation was shown between Paris and Munich in 1995 (Unesco Award).
Le bleu du ciel, new version
Behind a small monochrome is a double interactive process, the interaction of the building's interior with inner self, and that of the exterior with the planet.
An interactive sky:
The colour of the sky influences our temperament, our vision of the world.
This vision influences our perception of the colour of time.
People are extraverted in the south, introverted in the north; they are
gay in spring, melancholic when the sky is heavy and low. The colour of the sky
is an interactive fiction. The purpose of this project lies in the imaginary sky, a ubiquitous sky that exists somewhere between the north and the south, somewhere in our imagination. A never-ending sky. The infinite complexity of the telephone network. These live and imaginary monochromes, in harmony with real skies thousands of kilometres away, are a continuation of Yves Klein's
project and his monochromes.
