Luca Sabot

Externalized Sensations - Subject #1 - #15


(human hair, plexiglass, steel, electronics)

Kinetic Installation


During the first Covid lockdown in 2020, confronted with his own emotions, Luca Sabot was curious about how others perceived and experienced this time. The artist asked 15 people to share their experience with him via a standardized questionnaire and also contribute some of their hair, as it contains and stores lots of physical information. In the artwork Externalize Sensations - Subject #1 - #15 each container represents someones status during the first Covid 2020 lockdown. Placed in the box the hair is now reenacting their owners sensations.
