Lived Montage / Le montage vécu   (series)

Lived Montage was conceived as a fictional mode of perception, where "when the object of our consciousness is shared, the vision is shared( as a montaged cinematic vision). In order to implement this mode of perception in humans, a unique media apparatus was developed, consisting of several interconnected goggles. Each goggle has a camera and display, from which a stethoscope extends to the participant's chest. Their camera images are once transmitted to a computer, which groups the images according to "what they are looking at" and sends back to the goggle the cinematic image where each original image is switched in the group according to the timing of each participant's heartbeat. This new " beholding" -which is re-established by this mode after subject and object have been critiqued from their foundations- compulsively reveals the relationship between others, image, and space, or that between film, play, and life. ​

Lived Montageは、架空の知覚様式として構想された。 それは、「意識の対象が共有されれば、視覚も(各々の視界がモンタージュされた映画的景色として)共有される」という様式である。 この知覚様式を人間に実装するために、複数のゴーグルを連結した独自のメディアが開発された。それぞれのゴーグルにはカメラとディスプレイが取り付けられており、そこから装着者の胸に聴診器が伸びている。参加者の視界(カメラ映像)はコンピューターに送られ、そこで「何を見ているか」によって映像がグループ分けされ、グループ内の映像を各々の心拍のタイミングに合わせてスイッチした動画が、各々のゴーグルに送り返される。

APPARATUS

The media apparatus for "Lived Montage" consists of multiple interconnected goggles. Each set of goggles has a camera and display attached to a wearable wooden box from which a stethoscope extends that is placed on the participant’s chest. The participants’ camera images would be transmitted to a computer (via Wi-Fi/wires), which would group participants according to “what they are watching” known by sensors, and shuffles the images within this group according to the timing of each participant’s heartbeat. Then, these montaged images are sent back to the goggles. In this way, a fictional mode of perception is realized in which “when the object of our consciousness is shared, the vision is shared(as a montaged cinematic view where their perspective switched with the timing of individual heartbeats).”
