This interactive artwork is composed of a salt skull fixed to a mirror on the top of a pedestal and a headphone. The skull is made of several interactive zones which produce sounds with the electrostatic contact of the visitor. The spectator is invited to use the headphone in order to explore with his/her hands the different zones of the salt skull. This intimist staging generates a symbolic mirror between the salt skull and the head of the visitor. The positioning of the hands over the different areas of the work affects the sound spatialization. The quality of gestures, the intensity of contacts and electrostatic energies reveal and change the various polyphonic sound textures associated with each of the areas of the soundscape. The interactive installation offers a sound, meditative and intuitive exploration of this unknown space that contains our thoughts. It is a sound interpretation of the geographical location where our thoughts are built, this terra incognita that is inside our head. This sound sculpture is made of salt, a material both hard, precious, irritating, fragile and porous, which marks our skin. Salt is essential to life. It is one of the indispensable components of the human body, found inside bones, blood, and cells as well. It is not only a part of our internal biological landscape but also of the landscapes that surround us in its strong and rocky, or liquid form, diluted in the sea. Containing and content are thus mirrored in this skull of salt. The sound design is based on the binaural method. Each part of the skull reacts with a different sound which evolves in texture and spatialization according to the exploration of the surface. It is an organic soundscape which is listened in an intimist way. The visitor explores a singular anatomical and emotional excavation of an unknown and internal place, also full of geographical locations.
