Trou is an interactive sculpture from Valencia, Spain's Mireia Donat Melús: the nylon and silicon fiber blob invites viewers to don a surgical glove and insert their hands and arms into an elastic orifice in the sculpture's surface -- and watching their probing appendage from within via a live video-feed.
“‘Trou’ is an interactive installation project that, set in a medical-related environment, invites the public to examine an unknown object,” the statement says, as translate from Spanish. “A mole of nylon and miraguano rests on a large aluminum table, its strong physical body stirring our senses. This conglomerate report of fleshy appearance encourages us to delve into the intriguing orifice that, treasuring the great appearance of a great anus, presides over its front. ‘Trou’ plays the transcorporeality, the indiscernibility of the inside / outside, the unclean and the acceptable. An internal camera waits for the intrusive hand that fractures this barrier between the public and the private and in situ monitors it by giving witness of a spectator who is satiated in his desire to interrupt an internal passivity and rediscover the organic.”
