THE COSMOS IN WHICH WE ARE

Installation

 

The Cosmos In Which We Are by Montreal artist Pascal Dufaux is a kinetic video installation made up of photographs and automatic video recording that projects in real time video sequences on the gallery walls, using a continuous hypocycloid movement. Inspired by the surveillance cameras that surround us, the piece creates an experience where mediated and immediate perceptions are combined and where the visitor becomes the subject of the video.

LOST IN SPACE

Kinetic, interactive installations, and digital print

 

Lost in Space is an exhibition that puts the spectator at the centre of explorations in space and time, real or suggested. Nébuleuses urbaines (Quévillon) – which grew out of the interactive device Dérive – are spatial representations made up of particles that trace meteorological and astronomical fluctuations. Alien Perception (Dufaux) uses a space capturing system: both a “vision machine” and a projection system, the installation shows what it sees, visitors included. With Spectrale (Jarry), the space comes to life by constantly creating modular arrangements suspended in space and time. Finally, Jedi Action Drawing (Lagrange Paquet) is a space of action where the movements of a light sabre (Wiimote), handled by a spectator, are transcribed, or drawn, in real time on a screen.
