As part of "Luxembourg and the Greater Region: European Capital of Culture 2007" and events welcoming the arrival of the TGV Est at Metz station, Miguel CHEVALIER & Emmanuel Mâa Berriet invite you to a renewed vision of the cross-border space through its flows and networks.
Drawing on the past and present of the greater region, Miguel CHEVALIER & Emmanuel Mâa Berriet redraw a new geography where apparent borders are erased in the face of an unprecedented reality, consisting of a continuous intertwining of flows and movements. It reveals a permanent mixing of people, ideas and goods using a network of communication routes that is constantly evolving. The artist explores all the strata of this invisible map of networks, from the oldest to the most recent.
Featuring among the latest additions, the TGV EST and the very high speed artery that already irrigates the entire territory. Archaeologist, visionary, internationally renowned virtual architect, Miguel CHEVALIER & Emmanuel Mâa Berriet unravel the tangles of time to show us an unknown urban fabric, located beyond time and borders.
Crossborders 2007 is a 200 m2 interactive installation consisting of layers of real and virtual images in 2D and 3D. Thanks to a sensor system, the visitor can modify the visual and musical environment at will according to his movements.
