BENJAMIN LANDSBERG

Hugo Dalphond questions synergy between body, space and light through elaborating and building scenographic devices. It is principally by making viewers and performers coexist within a same space, and by modulating their perception of that space that it creates alternative sensory experiences. This distinction is made in different co-presence qualities, and thus, the gain of our interactions and relationship with others.

 

Since 2015, he tackles these issues in a PhD. His work is related to space and its potential to become a refuge where it is permitted to experiment with the world under other sensorial modalities.
