Intersecting Networks 2003

Generative and interactive virtual-reality installation

Nuit Blanche, Paris Chamber of Commerce, Paris, France

Size: 131.2 ft

Software: Emmanuel Mâa Berriet

Technical production: Voxels Productions

Photography: Benoît Grimberg

This installation, measuring 40 m (130 ft) in diameter, was projected onto the floor of the Bourse du Commerce de Paris to create the effect of a digital carpet. Intersecting Networks was conceived as a vectorized topology of network elements symbolizing the municipalities and companies that form the economic base of the Paris region. The names of companies and their registration numbers appeared in the center of the installation, thus giving visitors the impression of viewing the process of commerce in real time.
