Onion Skin

Portfolio : Onion Skin 

he  first  stage  in  the  Echolyse  project,  which  will  also  give  birth  to  other  works,  Onion  Skin  is  made  up  of  a physical  dimension  –  a  module  of  two  walls,  positioned  at  right  angles  –  augmented  by  a  projection  and  a 5.1  sound  broadcast.

 

Onion Skin is a graphical work about the re-composition of time and space through a game of perspectives, both of the exhibition space itself and that of the projection canvas. Built around a progressive structure, made up of 4 parts lasting 14 minutes in total, the piece plays on the principle of repetition and scale to create a physical and hypnotic experience that opens doors onto the hidden and untouchable.

 

The whole experience of the installation is based on a very specific point of view. A precise position from which a new dimension is revealed to the audience by anamorphosis. The simple geometric elements (“peelings”) that seemed to be flat at first suddenly start delimiting a new space. The illusion of a new dimension within the installation slowly appears as the onion skins seem to be leaving their physical surface behind.

Delta

Portfolio : Delta

ince ancient times, Delta, the fourth letter of the Greek alphabet, has been represented by a triangle pointing upwards. Originating from the equivalent letter of the Phoenician alphabet, it is based on a hieroglyph initially representing a door.

 

Delta, an installation and part of the Echolyse project, is a work on the perception of space, that explores, through a dematerialised door, the possibility of a fictional three-dimensional space

 

Making use of the anamorphosis technique, the piece is based on the position of the spectator,  predetermined by the artist, from which the audience will be able to visually reconstitute the geometrical symbol and discover the “pelures” (peelings) emitting from the very center of its gravity..
