Inner Space by Christian Delecluse, DA-Fest, Sofia, Bulgaria

On show 15.–19.9.2015 at the international Digital Art Festival, organised by the National Academy of Art (NAA) in Sofia, Bulgaria

The light and sound installation Inner Space offers viewers a dual experience that questions the process of how we build our perceptions. First, viewers are welcomed to contemplate a dynamic room where beams of light move in sync with sound, constantly shifting the intensity of the space and allowing the viewer to be carried away into a hypnotic trance. The piece offers a behind-the-scenes look where viewers observe the mechanical aspects of the project, with its low-tech counterweight mechanism and rough structural reinforcements. The spatial changes proposed by the installation occur randomly in real time, producing a succession of contrasting perceptions, switching between order and disorder, between determinism and chance, between mind control and letting go.

Xe-Rocks Installation for Photocopiers by Cécile Babiole, NAISA, Toronto

P1000327_800Xerocks by Cécile Babiole (also part of NXNE)
June 7, 2014 to July 13, 2014
Presented by New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) in partnership with the Consulate General of France in Toronto.

Xerocks is an interactive installation designed to turn two copying machines into musical instruments. Press a button on the machine and that will trigger a copying cycle, simultaneously generating a sequence of sounds. By (mis)appropriating and thereby alienating this familiar piece of office equipment, Xerocks ironically morphs an imaging apparatus into a sound production device. Read the rest of this entry »

Inner Space by Christian Delecluse, Mapping Festival, Geneva

On show 22.5.–1.6.2014 at Mapping Festival,Le Commun (BAC), Geneva

The second iteration of a light and sound installation, Inner Space offers viewers a dual experience that questions the process of how we build our perceptions. First, viewers are welcomed to contemplate a dynamic room where beams of light move in sync with sound, constantly shifting the intensity of the space and allowing the viewer to be carried away into a hypnotic trance.

DIRTI for iPad — the World’s First Tapioca Controller

Dirty Tangible Interfaces (DIRTI) are a new concept in interaction design that forgoes the dogma of repeatability in favor of a richer and more complex experience, constantly evolving, irreversible & infinitely modifiable. The video resuming 4 days of experimentation with a tangible interface and iPad app specially designed for kids at the Maison des Petits of the cultural centre CENTQUATRE in Paris is now online.

Inner Space, Le Cube, Issy les Moulineaux

Entrée libre pendant les horaires d’ouverture du Cube

A la suite de sa résidence de création au Cube, Christian Delécluse présente au public Inner Space, sa dernière installation numérique coproduite par Le Cube et Arcadi.

Inner Space est une installation lumineuse et sonore qui interroge les processus de construction de nos perceptions à travers la constitution d’espaces sensibles en perpétuelle transformation, à l’intérieur d’un vaste volume de la taille d’une chambre à coucher standard (12 m²).

Ce travail offre une double expérience. Read the rest of this entry »

Première of Blanc Brut by Cie. Atmen, Étoile du Nord, Paris

World premiere of Intérieur Crème, Acte II: Blanc Brut by choreographer Françoise Tartinville, Cie. Atmen, live music by Frédéric Blondy and Diemo Schwarz, at the Etoile du Nord theatre.  With Marguerite Lantz, Françoise Tartinville (scenography), Fabien Almakiewicz, Cyril Geeroms (dance), Boris Molinié (lights).

See the interview with choreographer Françoise Tartinville on Blanc Brut.

Blanc Brut, deuxième volet d’Intérieur Crème, est une approche du masculin – considéré dans son volume, sa matière, ses aspérités – sous l’angle d’un regard féminin. Deux « physicalités » se déploient sur scène : deux forces, qui tantôt s’assemblent, formant une même entité organique mouvante et multiple, et qui tantôt se partagent en deux entités à la fois opposées mais interdépendantes.
Il s’agit d’explorer les ressorts pulsionnels des corps, le mouvement brut, puissant, charnel et instinctif et d’en suivre les flux, les trajectoires communes, les architectures imaginaires.
Les mouvements sont abrupts puis s’enroulent, se répandent pour s’épuiser jusqu’à l’étourdissement, laissant émerger les états intérieurs du danseur.
