With digital technologies becoming more powerful, accessible and democratic, virtual manipulation becomes not only more present, but more realistic. Virtual lie, embedded in our culture of the beginning of the century, is now a staple of the mass media. Modifications of images disturb the veracity of facts. These new realities, constructed and calculated, affect and influence humans by a simple principle of illusion. Dichotomie was created from these observations, audiovisual project based on a concept of contradictory forces, deconstructed lie emerging from a heterogeneous mixture. Digital manipulation is not insidious; union of disparate elements constitutes the work, dialogue between sound and visual.
Icelandic and Canadian landscapes became playgrounds of forms / digital manipulations. They do not only set the viewer into a defined space; it imposes a perception / understanding of a reality. This perception is disturbed by graphic interventions, which aim to deconstruct reality and to trouble the perception. Sound, divided between soundscapes and synth sounds, plays a unifying role, pairing both visual extremes, by a concept of pure synchronicity. If soundscapes are related to nature, sound clics, synth bass and other typical electronic sounds represents, trough time, the evolution of data manipulation.
