What is peculiar about the "Extra-Sensory" exhibition is that it displays a field of research hardly explored in France: the overlap between fashion and new technologies. More precisely, the incursion in garment and accessories of computer and electronic technologies, likely to modify individuals’ capacities and behaviour.
"Extra-Sensory" stands notably for this capacity to transform the way one sees oneself or the world around. In these physical, psychic or background changes, the attribute works as a second skin. Thus, from that intimate angle, through art and technologies, artists enlight an ambiguous vision of their humanity.
As a result, the antagonism between science and art gets a special echo, influencing one another to create a fiction. This question is clearly at the centre of numeriscausa’s guideline, whose ambition is the hybrid research between contemporary art and new media.
