Come and insert yourself into the frame in this series of video works. For the New Forms Festival 2016, the artist duo Grégory Lasserre & Anaïs met den Ancxt who work under the name Scenocosme created new video works in Surrey.

Rencontres Imaginaires is a series of interactive behavioural video works. Viewers onsite at UrbanScreen are invited to insert themselves into the frame to engage in imaginary encounters with ‘virtual friends’ in real-time through a large-scale projection and interactive kiosk. The pre-recorded videos of virtual friends prompt the viewer to react to their gestures. Referencing and recalling the first tricks of early cinema, by filmmakers like Georges Méliès over a hundred years ago, this artwork uses techniques of illusion to encourage play in public space.

Gregory Lasserre and Anais met den Ancxt develop the concept of interactivity in their artworks by using multiple kind of expression : art, technology, sounds and architecture. They mix art and digital technology in order to find substances of dreams, poetries, sensitivities and delicacies. They also explore invisible relationships with our environment: they can feel energetic variations of living beings. They design interactive artworks, and choreographic collective performances, in wich spectators share extraordinary sensory experiences. Interactive and digital art, installation, design, music, architecture... are combined in the projects realised by Scenocosme.
