L'atomisation du temps

L'atomisation du temps.
Solo exhibition at Occurrence.
Presented in collaboration with Elektra.
From May 7th to June 18 2011.

L'atomisation du temps (The Atomization of Time) draws together images, videos and media installations that use the matrix structure of the digital image to visualize spatiotemporal phenomena. Retracing events lasting between one hour and one year, each representation is the result of a process in which pixels have individually captured fragments of successive moments. This temporal dislocation operation generates stratigraphic images which reveal the randomness, rhythms, intensities and transitory moments of a reality in constant flux.

The exhibition also includes prints of 3D point clouds related to an interactive installation in which these models of urban spaces are transformed according to the fluctuation of environmental data collected in real time on the Web.

In the works shown at Occurrence, the pixels of images and the points of 3D models are used as space-time units in order to translate the variability of environmental conditions while questionning the threshold of perception, the vague area where «noise» becomes a source of information.

The exhibition at La Maison Bourgogne presented digital images from the series Chronoscopies made in Montréal (Canada) and Orléans (France), as well as a media installation that allowed the user to manipulate 3D point cloud data of Orléans. This is the first part of a project that aims to transform 3D models according to environmental information collected on the Web (see Dérive).

Les attracteurs étranges

Les attracteurs étranges, installation, 2006-2008.

This installation is an architectural intervention that separates spaces and connects them back together through an interactive smoke screen contained in a glassed wall. The density and dynamics of a mass of artificial fog is altered by computer controlled ventilators which are activated according to the movements and positions of the public on both sides.


This project was supported by the FQRSC, Interstices and CIAM. Thanks to Gisèle Trudel, Stéphane Beaudet for the electronics, Lynn Hughes & Jean Dubois (Interstices), Oboro and EAVM-UQAM.
