In 2010, the Encyclopédie de la parole was invited to display its entire collection at the Villa Arson. An installation took the form of a map placed on the space’s 300 m2 square floor. The collection’s documents were represented by plates, connected to one another by eighteen lines corresponding to the Encyclopédie’s eighteen entries. Visitors were equipped with a barcode scanner allowing them to listen to each document and make their way through as much of the exhibition as desired.
From February 18th to May 22nd, 2011 at the Villa Arson National Center for Contemporary Art, Nice.
