Music excerpt from The Unanswered Question by Charles Ives.

Ecotone addresses the relationship between the infinite need to express one’s desires and the exposure of oneself on the networks. The work captures live all the messages written on Twitter that express desires: “I would like so much”, “I dream of”, “I want too much”…

The messages are read by synthetic voices. They generate an abstract landscape in 3D, where each sentence produces a wave or a mountain. These personal and sometimes very intimate thoughts express as well love desires or life dreams as those of a pair of sneakers. This artificial paradise moves slowly towards us, without ever stopping, like an addiction that would never stop.
