Mélodie Mousset, contemporary artist and creator of HanaHana (nominated at Amaze 2019) will share the surreal story that led her to VR and to the creation of pieces exhibited at the festival.  Back in 2012, the artist used medical imagery to obtain digital and physical copies of her internal organs which she carried in her suitcase, across the Atlantic, on board a cargo container. In Mexico, after several shamanic reimbodiement  attempts, she finally decided to engulf in the cave system of Masateca s’ magic mountain. This, also leaded to her first VR introspective piece called « We were looking for ourselves in each others (Organ Island). « Meeting my heart, brain and liver  in a desert island and stepping into them for real was a powerful experience »….

The storytelling-performance will develop perspective on how art and technology can fabricate or transform individual or collective fiction.
