ExtraPolis

Augmented interactive screens

ExtraPolis : Mankind shapes the city, the city shapes mankind.

ExtraPolis is an interactive installation that represents an imaginary city with which the visitor can interact. In order to achieve this, it draws upon a technique of augmented design, which combines drawing and video animation to bring an originally drawn piece of work to life. 

 

Breaking the boundaries between different media images, ExtraPolis immerses the viewer in a city in perpetual motion. The universe that has been created disrupts the viewer, offering a sensory experience. As both the observer and the observed, the passer-by contemplates a whimsical city coming to life before his very eyes, and one in which he could very well be the protagonist.  Olivier Bonhomme the illustrator, and David Chanel the engineer, conduct a piece of conceptual research on the morphology of the city. They discuss the ambiguous relationship between humankind and the images and iconography of the city. With Extrapolis, they are, quite simply, posing a question about our identity itself.
