Accrochages

Module OISO, Montreal, 2008

Accrochages is a urban electronic intervention project by Montreal-based artists Sofian Audry and Samuel St-Aubin. It stems from their will to bring their art practice out of the walls of a gallery space, on the walls of the city itself. The intent is to build small active and autonomous objects that can, through simple means, give new qualities to the city environment by creating different interactive situations.

Description

Accrochages is a urban electronic intervention project by Montreal-based artists Sofian Audry and Samuel St-Aubin. It stems from their will to bring their art practice out of the walls of a gallery space, on the walls of the city itself. The intent is to build small active and autonomous objects that can, through simple means, give new qualities to the city environment by creating different interactive situations.

The project proposes different models of objects. Some of them are produced in large amount, while others are unique. They display different kinds of behaviors through the use of simple sensors and emitters (e.g. light-sensor, distance sensor, microphone, LED, speaker, LED display, etc). Objects produced as part of Accrochages should ultimately be auto-sufficient (ie. able to recharge themselves, with solar panels for instance) and low-cost (we are targeting less than 15 Euros).
