Perceiving Involvement Devic), was created by
Thierry Giannarelli in 2006. It is a simple device, which allows by a
mechanical stimulation of the neuromuscular spindles inserted inside
the muscles, to give birth to a feeling of movement in the subject's
conscience. This device is used in many scientific studies to explore
the role of proprioception in corporal conscience. Associated with
sounds (music, poetry, etc.) and images (vidoes, photos, dance, etc.), the
Perceiving Involvement Device invites us to feel how we get conscious,
an embodied consciousness, of the world. By this way, we obtain a very
particular tool for artistic expression, which gives to the audience
the possibility to intensify in a very surprising way his feeling of
living the artistic action. T. Giannarelli called "poethic
subaction" this artistic mode of expression and "subactor",
the visitor who is experimenting the DIP.
