Installation, Clisson, France, 2011
In collaboration with Bence Samu, Hungarian artist (binaura.net/bnc)
I spent two months in the villa ‘Garenne Lemot’ in Clisson, a little town in France. There is a vast and astonishing park around the villa with full of ancient trees. In the middle of June the leaves began to fall. The gardener explained me that in the last couple of years ‘the autumn’ started much earlier as the trees are drying out, because of the climate change. For this land art and installation project I marked the leaves before their fall around the park with red silk ribbons. Using a camera and a computer through the exhibition space’s windows - in a collaboration with Bence Samu, Budapest-based new media artist - we detected the ribbons’ movements in the wind. In a live connection with the garden, the computer projected thin, black lines on the walls of the exhibition space. The software reacted to the ribbons only when they were moving and projected the lines to draw the connections between the marked leaves outside. In the final result, I found really interesting not only the live mapping of the leaves momentary location but also the empty spaces within the projection when the wind stopped blowing and the walls stayed white.
