Installations


OPTX.drips (2021)

Dual-screen a/v installation

Stereoscopic, 3D (red/cyan)

Aleatoric A/V loop

OPTX.drips is a media archeological work that features an outdated optical technology and an obsolete medium that has been revisited through digital technology. This installation is grounded in the notion of an optical texture that is only visible using stereoscopic anaglyph (3D, red/cyan) technology, thereby transforming flat projection surfaces into optical membranes that are rich in relief and depth, and is articulated through an abstract and expressive aesthetic.

Supported by Mutek (Montreal, Canada) as part of the Le Livart exhibition, curated by Sarah Ève Tousignant and Alain Mongeau.


STRUCTURES PARALLÈLES (2021)

Stereoscopic A/V sculpture

Structures parallèles is a media-archeological project in which an obsolete media, in this case the Holmes’s Stereoscope, is creatively repurposed. This viewer was historically used to look at photographic figurative 3D images. Through an optical stereoscopic process, the stereo images would fuse into one image and give the illusion of depth, texture and relief. The device is now used to view abstract stereoscopic 3D moving images with full effects of depth, textures and relief on display. It can now also be used to create a form of stereoscopic optical colour blending.

LA FIN DU MÉDIA (2021)

Audiokinetic installation (loop)

An exploration of sonic possibilities in relation to electromagnetic fields and obsolescent media. This work is part of an approach rooted in media archaeology, a creative recovery of media and technologies that have fallen into obsolescence. Like a prepared piano, CD players were hacked and transformed into instruments, generating a different sound, Their electromagnetic fields become music, being amplified and spatialized through an audiokinectic device.
