Jean Louis Boissier :: Flora Petrinsularis [1993/94]

The proposal made to the visitor is to associate to a real book another one, which is virtual, to be flipped through on the screen. The virtual book opens interactive sequences of images and sounds with variable rhythm animations. For each quotation, there is a video illustration, as an engraving, focused on a character from the short love scenes, in the very moments of outburst, selected from »The Confessions« by Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
