Jean Dubois

Tourmente, 2015

Interactive video

This interactive installation allows passers-by to transform a series of portraits projected on a giant screen by blowing into a microphone on their cell phones. Playful and socially engaged, the work questions the various postures one adopts when faced with the distress of others.


Manif d’art is grateful for the support of the Cultural Development Agreement between the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications and the Ville de Québec, as well as the Église Saint-Roch and SDC St-Roch.

The artist would like to thank the Fonds de recherche québécois, Société et Culture (FRQSC), Hexagram-UQAM, the Programme d’aide financière à la recherche et à la création of the Université du Québec à Montréal, and Professor Ghyslain Gagnon of the École de technologie supérieure.
