From webcomics to virtual reality
“Machines à bulles” is an interactive exhibition to explore innovative French digital comics. The Institut français showcases this projects worldwide in 2020 and 2021, to highlight dynamic and imaginative French works reflecting how the visual narrative stands out for the quality of its digital productions. Indeed, the Digital allows to blur the lines between all disciplines and to rethink the relationship between authors and readers. These new types of narratives and ways of reading open to new literary creation opportunities and change the relationship to the book, the paper format and the digital “machines”. This way, the comic creators keep experimenting with new types of stories, while playing with the codes of sequential narrative.
