Our current forms of communication are strongly affect by the evolution of the technology and especially by the appearance in 2007 of the first smartphones and of the development of their numerous applications / functions to communicate (phone call, sms, email, facebook, what's up, twitter etc.)
DONNÉES NOIRES is an interactiv installation that aims to question the way we communicate (through smartphones), demonstratively.
The user can plugg his iphone through a slot in the installation. When he received a communication (call, sms, facebook notification, what's up, 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 metaphorizes the overload of communication passing through the Iphone.
