Artists / PATRICK SAINT-DENIS (QC-CA)
VERTEX draws on the complex behaviour of mechanical energy dissipating in different media. The artists illustrate this physicality through a three-dimensional device in which sound and light are subjected to the forces of elevation and rotation. Each of the 16 vertical poles has a set of two speakers and an LED lamp, the movements of which are controlled by algorithms that simulate the propagation of energy in a virtual medium. Through their circular and vertical movement, sounds are distributed in space depending on the distance that separates each of the poles. At the same time, the lights follow and reveal how the propagation is done.
