You Look Like I Feel

This translucent and fleshy sculpture, beyond its aesthetic qualities, serves as a tool, as a «props» for activations / performances in large urban centers. It allows to evaluate the interpretation of the frozen posture of an anonymous performer by the passers-by, as well as by the algorithms of video surveillance, since these are now able to recognize a whole panel of postures. The question arises whether they will interpret this sculpture and its three variations of frozen postures as a danger requiring an intervention/reporting to the authority.
