Luc Courchesne (Canada) The Visitor: Living by Numbers Interactive panorama, 2001

The Visitor: Living By Numbers is an interactive panoramic work inspired by Pier Paolo Pasolini's 1969 film Theorema and by a dream Courchesne's daughter had when she was 10 years old. At first, visitors are planted somewhere in the Japanese countryside. From there they will try to make a life for themselves by saying any Numbers between one and twelve.

Exploring the territory, happening upon and entering a shelter, meeting and dealing with the inhabitants and gaining status within the group will define a visitor's experience. Leaving the place and the inhabitants to themselves (as in Pasolini's film) or being forced to escape after an earthquake (as in his daughter's dream) will further characterize the visitor's experience.
