The Tunnel under the Atlantic, by Maurice Benayoun is an interesting stimulatory system that connects visitors of the Pompidou Centre in Paris to the visitors of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Montreal through a simulated “digging” through skewed virtual medium. By using televirtuality, people in each museum can dig to meet each other, and then interact with each other in this virtual channel. They are brought together through communication as they survey their virtual surroundings that reveal geological strata as iconographic strata, bringing both shape and recognizable textures.
The Tunnel under the Atlantic is an interactive art installation by Maurice Benayoun that first was exhibited in September 1995.
