The video installation "Gravity" was exhibited on March 17th, 2009 as part of the E.motion electronic festival in Bordeaux.
The show took place onto the Utopia movie theater's facade, on a popular square in the city center. During the rough 3 hours that lasted the projection, 1017 messages were sent onto the wall by the audience who participated enthusiastically.

Gravity is a collaborative application using buildings'architecture as a projection surface.
This real time interactive animation allows people to send sms text messages to the installation. The words are then embedded into geometric shapes, and are dropped from the top of the projection. The fall as well as their collisions with the building's environment are physics-driven, making interactions happen between the different sent messages, creating an open participative "exquisite corpse" scene where spectators can react to each other's sentences.
