A/V Installation

EN
The  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. Onion Skin is augmented by a 5.1 sound broadcast that reinforces this impression of volume and space.

La première étape du projet Echolyse est l'installation Onion Skin. Elle est constituée d'une dimension physique - un module de deux murs, positionnés en angle droit - complétée par une projection et une création sonore.

Onion Skin est un travail sur la recomposition du temps et de l'espace à travers un jeu de perspective, à la fois de l'espace d'exposition lui-même et celui de la surface de projection. Onion Skin joue sur le principe de la répétition et de l’échelle pour créer une expérience physique et hypnotique ouvrant les portes sur l’invisible.

Les animations, des éléments géométriques simples appelés « pelure », sont structurées selon un scénario progressif, divisé en quatre parties, formant un ensemble de 14 minutes.

Un son surround 5.1 accentue la dimension physique de l’installation, renforçant l’impression de volume et d’espace.
