_Field is an adaptation of the work Starfield created in 2012 by Cyril Diagne.

Starfield is an interactive physical installation that hijacks an icon born from the democratization of computing: the screensaver of Windows 3.1. The piece is composed of a swing allowing to interact with a big starry sky. The visitor travels to the rhythm of his swing. Starfield encourages the imagination, by evoking an infinite space: the visitor discovers a collection of white pixels on a black background. The projection of black and white pixels animated by the movement of the swing, queries the juxtaposition of a fictional universe and a tangible object. The intentionally low-tech device hijacks a device belonging to the world of video games: the Microsoft Kinect.
