ON-Octobre Numérique

Thanks to this project from the collective AILO, imagined as an immersive and sensory experience, the public is invited to discover the spaces of the castle in a completely new way. Dialoguing with the historical architecture, this exposition navigates between movement, light and architecture to create pieces that are both material and immaterial, physical and spatial, all based on recycled light.
The artists lead the public along an immersive path that is both augmented by way of the tricks of light diffraction and virtual by way of the discovery of new spatial dimensions.

Light Construction

2016 (50cm width x 50cm depth x 130 cm height. Wood, mirrors, light, motor, electronics.)

Immersive set-up, dialogue between matters. The sculpture, a palpable matter, is transcended by the geometric appearance of luminous reflections. Throughout a slow choreography, they organize themselves in a perfect cube, laid on the ground, and then envelope the whole space around. Light, an unpalpable matter, appears as if sculpted. Games of opposition and contrasts, thanks to the view of the sculpture's inside. A tower of mirrors, where geometric lines are reflected in an infinite maze of geometric designs.

To Compose

2017 (540cm lenght x 140cm width x 40cm height. Mirrors, mapping vidéo)

An heritage reflection work, where mirror facets redesign the setting's new vision. Interaction between the spectator, who slowly creates his own vision as he moves, and the heritage reflecting inside. Video mapping highlights the chapel's arches and then creates a whole, between the setting and the sculpture, while giving birth to these notions of motion and depth.

Diffraction

2017 (170cm height x 100cm width x 100cm depth. Wood, mirrors, mapping vidéo)

Originating from a single light ray, the discovery of diffraction games provided by reflecting surfaces. Programmation variations create a dialogue with the sculpture, give it a sense of motion. Questioning our perception.

Light Motion

2016/2017 (Mirrors, mapping video. Variable dimensions)

Immersive and sensorial work. All stems from the line, such as a desire for something infinite.

A game of projected luminous lights, that progresses in slow fashion. Interaction with mirrors transcending the light flow. Reflected to the ground and multiplied, as if to better include the spectator. Discovery of the lines' thicknesses to interact with the exhibit's setting. Taken into darkness, luminous lines grow thinner, to slowly reveal, more and more, as the lines grow thicker.

Light Experience

2017 (120cm height x 120 cm width x 50cm depth. Wood, motorized light)

All stems from the line. Luminous undulation work. 7 grooves that resonates with the castle's loopholes, where the light emerges, as if it had been imprisoned, to shine even brighter. Motorized, it slowly undulates, as if it was looking for some roundness, similarly to this sculpture's volumes, round with straight lines.
