J’ai tant rêvé de toi

Two light sources are vibrating. They are both repositories of intimate and internal intensities perceived during the listening of the poem « J’ai tant rêvé de toi » (Robert Desnos) whispered to François-Xavier Makoumb – who is blind- and the artist. Brain waves of each of the protagonists have been recorded and transposed in light intensities. They reveal emotional peaks felt by listening the poem.
The installation proposes a personal listening of the whispered poem while being witness of the intensity felt by the two characters.
