Good things come in threes! So for the third − and last − time, Rotondes will open its unique library of children’s books. In the AB / Augmented Books exhibition, the books are not there just to be read, they are waiting to be brought to life. 

The moon throws itself at the visitors’ feet, the sandman’s daughter ventures into the virtual night… Stories overflow from the pages with the complicity of the readers. Thanks to the authors’ inventiveness, sometimes all it takes is a single gesture − a pencil stroke, a snip of the scissors, a slip of the finger − to rediscover and multiply the pleasure of reading. Here, that pleasure extends far beyond the paper, on tablets and in ingenious participatory installations.

« D’une action fugace, ou de manipulation numérique, le livre s’étend, bouge, vit différemment, sans pour autant se délester de la vivacité de la lecture. Nous sommes entre le réel et le virtuel, dans une dimension nouvelle des mondes imaginés dans les bouquins… »

The AB / Augmented Book 3.0 exhibition is a Rotondes production.
