"Collective Retinal Memory: An Installation by Jean-Baptiste Barriere and Maurice Benayoun"
2001-06-28 until 2001-08-19
Kiasma, Museum of Contemporary Art
Helsinki, , FI

Jean-Baptiste Barriere and Maurice Benayouns interactive sound and image installation, Art Impact, Collective Retinal Memory, invites the viewer to inspect panoramic pictures of the La Beaute Exhibition held in Avignon. The panoramas are viewed individually using virtual glasses, and each viewers visual journey is recorded in real time.

Another panorama, projected on a wide screen, has been made by combining the paths of different viewers. This collective retinal memory of the visual experiences of individuals appears as a collage of landscapes.

The visual path is formed by partly transparent pictures which the viewers have seen; it is not transparent where the glance has lingered longest, the more transparent it is, the shorter the viewing time. Simultaneously, the same panoramas can be seen on the Internet, where the viewer can embark on his own visual/virtual exploration using the mouse in place of the virtual glasses.

The retina picture is updated daily and the visual paths of the public become a unique panorama, which is assembled from all the routes of the glances recorded in the Exhibition or on the Internet.
