Fabricate your own truth for free.
Appropriate words and gestures, embody radio news and contribute to the propagation of information without verification.
A total sensory and immersive experience, RADIOMATON questions the construction of truth, media contamination, fake news and the role of the body in the perception of information.
Installed in a cubicle resembling a photo booth and equipped with headphones broadcasting live a local radio station, each RADIOMATON user must repeat aloud the words they hear, while imitating the gestures that are displayed on the screen in front of them. This recorded performance, mingling movements and words that do not match together, is remixed in a kaleidoscope where all meanings intersect.

The RADIOMATON installation is conceived to be either a stand-alone or an experience to co-exist with the show BESIDE.
