Useful Fictions was a week-long symposium and a public participatory art project in Paris.
One of the stated missions of the symposium:
As a graduate fellow in the symposium I worked in LAB 2: A MICROCLIMATE OF ONE at the Laboratoire d'hydrodynamique (LadHyX)
with Professors Jean-Marc Chomaz (LadHyX, École polytechnique) and Stuart Dalziel (DAMTP, University of Cambridge).
The goal this of lab this lab was participatory art installation in which synthetic Schlieren photography would used to produce real-time photographic portraits of participants through visualizations of the invisible atmospheric plumes produced by the heat flux and convection of the human body. Through the unique sensitivites of this photographic technology developed by Prof. Dalziel, the subject can see that the edges of their own body are not as explicit and concrete as one may think - visually reinforcing the idea that the corporeal self may be an illusion.
