Mnemo Machina

There is sound of nature and people working playing in the dark room. These sounds, which were recorded in Daigo town, and give listeners an idea of everyday life in the region today. At the center, there is a three-dimensional object covered by a sheet. When sensors detect an approaching viewer, light is emitted from inside, showing up dreamy silhouettes of various objects inside the sheet (things that were in the school building, things treasured by alumni and so on). At the same time, the sound changes to the voices of alumni singing the school anthem. Composit – a team composed of Nicolas Charbonnier, Guillaume Léger, Julie Prost, Shunsuke Francois Nanjo, and Christophe K. Goosens – will make the case through their work for the reconstruction of memories related to this school, which is still loved and used by the local people today. Their art provide visitors – not just locals and alumni, but people regardless of age or origin – with a chance to reunite with their primary school selves.
