An Expressive and Audiovisual Painting

“Medium” is an interactive, expressive and audiovisual painting created by Bay Dam and Souleymane Konaté, as part of the “Stretched Terrains” travelling artistic residency project. During the bus trip from Lagos, Nigeria, through Benin, Togo, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Mali and finally to Dakar, Senegal, the artists were inspired by the different social, cultural, economic and political diversities of these countries.

To initiate dialogue between human beings and machines, the public is encouraged to touch the different parts of the painting in order to be able to hear the multitude of soundtracks recorded, edited and associated with each drawing. To make the painting feel more alive, the artists filled some of the illustrations with animated light, using projection mapping techniques.
