Murmures Urbains

Orbe created Murmures Urbains, an emerging fiction built on the principle of post-narrative writing. Firstly, a staging based on protocols creates multiple situations outbreaks in the public space. Secondly, the traces and testimonies from these experiments are collected in a scenic area. In the epilogue course and stories are presented in an exhibition space.

Murmures Urbains is a rich context to experiment situated medias. The framework used for these experiments is a foreshadowing of the Cosima platform. With Medias-Situés, you can associate media with a combination of trigger constraints : space conditions, time, environmental or behavioral. The device also allows you to synchronize events between multiple mobile, manage spatial sound or hybridize remote areas. Murmures Urbains has been deployed in several contexts : workshops in art and design schools, such as ENJMIN (National School of Video Game and Interactive Media), during festivals and events like Chalon dans la Rue.

Murmures Urbains will be in residence at L’HĂ´pital EphĂ©mère in April 2015 and will be presented at Chalon dans la Rue festival in July 2015.
