« Passage » is a multimedia installation dedicated to the concept of memories. It consists on a 10 meters long tunnel, with sensors and interactive sounding and lightening environment.

The subject can be defined in collaboration with the organizer or linked with a specific thematic (Time, Ecology, portrait of a person, etc…). Those sound sequences are re-created in studio as short compositions. By walking inside the tunnel, the visitor can listen to these sequences. He is thus facing the imaginary world of someone else. Walking through the tunnel, he can listen to the sequences in different ways : either quickly crossing the tunnel or in a more precise way by stopping and controling the sound evolution with his movements.
