Two variations of colours, which are constantly complementary, are projected on both sides of a panel, then reflected against the walls of the room. In the same principle, two sounds with a continuous pitch difference are diffused in space.

Visitors can feel a state of tension, due to the constant visual and sound complementarity and the impossibility of understanding the movement of the pixels. But at the same time, the incomprehensibility of this movement can capture their attention.

Spectators are absorbed without being able to rationalize.

This impossibility creates saturation and tension that pushes them to let go.

The letting go allows them toreach a modified state of consciousness, in which their perception of time is no longer determined by particular points of reference, but rather by progressive transformations. This saturation of perceptions is inspired by Ericksonian hypnosis. The abstraction of the visual and sound elements allows each visitor to appropriate this state of induction and to travel in their own thoughts.
