The ubiquity of tactile interfaces and the digitization of media contents are transforming our relationship to the consumption and production of visual objects. While the tactile commands of mobile devices adapt to images to grant them a material and usable property, the technological apparatus is for its part sublimated by the fluidity of the interface that hides its inherent materiality in favour of a relation that is increasingly attuned to its user. Objet de recherche is interested in the intimate relation between users and their mobile devices, as well as in the synesthetic perceptions acquired through an addiction to these personal interfaces. By way of a participative set-up, the exhibition seeks to reveal the cultural or even political conquests that the sensorial experiences of users are now the object of.
