“ChangeEverything / changerTout”

Authors: i-Trace collective

What is a synonym? Sometimes, we pick the wrong word.  “ChangeEverything” is a web piece based on the naive belief that every word can be replaced by one of its synonyms. Using a live connection to a remote thesaurus, “ChangeEverything” provides variation on a text slowly straying from the original phrase to a perfect non-sense. Click after click, the user provokes a progressive drift in meaning.

“Opacity / Opacité”

Authors: i-Trace collective and Léonard Dumas

“Opacity” is a 4-part short interactive story. We live in an age of obsession with transparency, especially in politics and business. But in our personal relationships, what is the point of being transparent to oneself and to others? Opacity is the story of a journey from a dream of transparency to a desire for opacity.
