In your projects you refer a lot to mathematics and other sciences. What is the impact of these worlds on your creations?
They are all tools, but never an end in themselves. Sciences and mathematics are descriptive languages, strong and concise, created to describe what is real. But in general we like to mix the technical side and scientific data with poetics and sensitive issues, to describe imaginary worlds and to blur the lines between what is real and what is fake. We like to make our universe stand out and creating a piece is like offering a vision of possible world.
Can you tell us more about your latest project »L’ombre de la lumière«?
Initiated in June 2018 »L’ombre de la lumière« (The shadow and the light) is an interactive and immersive work ordered by the Martell foundation, which just opened a large exhibition space at Cognac, a city in the South West of France. This project pays tribute to the genius loci. Before the works began, the surfaces where full of a mushroom called Torula, which feeds on the evaporations of alcohol. Thanks to digital systems we created an animist fiction, a work that reveals shadows and light.
