In November 1994, during the Artifices 3 exhibition which presented, in Saint-Denis, twelve interactive artistic installations, Maurice Benayoun proposed his first virtual reality installation : Is God flat ? designed and produced by Z.A Production
Is the Devil Curved ?
That was the beginning of a series of works called the Big Question. Three months after, an extended step, Is the Devil curved ? was presented on Canal +
booth, during Imagina 1995, Monte Carlo.
This is a diverted use of what we call " artificial life ", which talks about life (the
purpose of art) beyond a basic demonstration, by placing shapes in space. The visitor of this
virtual world truly exists within this world, changing at his contact. The meaning itself is in
this relation. The interactive realism lies in the transposition of laws, which rules the world in
laws, which rules the meaning.
First exhibition: Imagina, Monaco, February 1995
