[fr] LAPS est une installation sonore et visuelle qui utilise Internet comme un espace imaginaire dans lequel le son vient se réverbérer. En s’appuyant sur les erreurs de transmission, le matériau sonore est modelé par l’espace acoustique virtuel du réseau. Les flux sonores diffusés au sein de l’installation se complexifient progressivement et rendent compte de l’activité du web en différents points du globe. L’analyse du réseau en ces différents points est utilisée pour dessiner progressivement la silhouette d’un paysage imaginaire à l’intérieur de l’installation.

[en] LAPS is an audio and visual installation that uses Internet as an imaginary space where sound echoes, reverberates throughout the Web. Based on transmission errors, the sound material is shaped by the virtual acoustic space of the network. Sound streams broadcasted within the installation structure gradually echoes the activity of the Web in various locations of the globe. Its analysis in these various points is used to progressively draw the contours of an imaginary landscape inside the installation.
