Sève Favre is a Swiss artist who creates art that is meant to be touched and interacted with, her works allow almost unlimited possibilities.
Favre's works include small paper cubes made of a base and a lid which slide in and over each other. Each base has a colour, mirror or design inside, each lid has its own colour or texture. Viewers are invited to interact with the art.
Favre asks each participant to make their own works, moving boxes, taking away, slotting in loads to create something that is unique to the viewer, she then asks the artist to write what they feel and takes a photo with them and their creation.
Interactive art game
I met Favre at Roy's People Art Fair and was so happy to see people taking the time to interact and adapt the artworks. Favre had around 8 pieces on the wall and asked the viewers to find a piece that appealed to them and then play with it. I found a piece that had the base image of a brain painted under and on a few of the lids and proceeded to create. My artwork hasn't gone up on her site yet but I will add when it goes live. My creation was called 'thinking outside the box' as I made a tower of lids which reached over the top of the base brain image.
I love the fact that people can get involved in the process, the game linked above allows you to create your own versions of Favre's art.
There are times you want to touch art, run your finger over artworks to feel the texture of paints, follow the sweep of the brushes.
This series brings creativity alive and makes you more than just a viewer, you become part of the art.
