Le Bestiaire Numérique (the electronic bestiary) is an artistic creation produced by Seconde Nature. Visitors to the exhibit are immersed in a circular gallery of mirrors, a world of mobile objects and chimeras, optical illusions created with the artifice of two-way mirrors. Le Bestiaire Numérique used this original stage design to structure a collection of audio-visual creations commissioned to visual artists, video artists and musicians, who work on the notion of hybridizing, as well as on the creation of mutants as archetypes of our social imaginary. As they walk through the installation, visitors will discover a digital mutant behind every mirror, as if they were looking through the window of a vivarium.
