    CONCEPT
    SHIiKAKU = 四角, 視覚, 視角, 死角 is a Japanese homophone that translates to "square", "visual", "optic angle" as well as "blind spot". Embracing these themes and variations, SHiKAKU07 creates light symphony by the presence of a viewer in real time. SHiKAKU 07 is a unique "seeing sound " experience by public participation.

    SHiKAKU 07 introduces to public a new way of experience the installation by surprise. It is a new art that public has to participate and interact. It is not like a traditional form of installation, observe art, that public interact one way. Public participation will be a part of the installation. Inspired by Zen Garden structure, SHiKAKU 07 transform old idea and stricture require to sit, meditate, and observe, into a new digital, an active garden, SHiKAKU 07 that uses LED lights and sound with new technology by public collaborative activation.

    四角: Square structure
    SHiKAKU 07' structure is inspired by Japanese Zen garden, Karesansui. It is a "dry landscape" garden, that creates arrangement of rocks, water, moss, tree and bushes and uses sand to create a universe. SHiKAKU 06 as a Digital Zen garden presents LED strips hanging from the ceiling to the wall as a tree and bushes, a cube like LED bars structure as rocks and public walking through the structure as water. There will be 2 set of 1-2m LED light cube like structures with 10 sets of 2-6m LED light strip over it. Public will be free to walk around the structures.

    視覚: Visual
    SHiKAKU 07' s experience is "seeing sound" and public will be a part of creation. Visual effect will be synchronized with sound.
    Depend on where public stand, their audio visual experience will be different with 6 channel speakers.

    視角: Optical angle
    SHiKAKU, Square structures are 2 cube like installations. Combination of Led lights create illusion of many different patterns of cube in the dark space.

    死角: Blind spot
    Unexpected light and sound experience will happen how public walk through the installation. Exposure of strong LED lights will appear as a unexpected afterimages.

    USER EXPERIENCE
    When no one is in the space, there will be very minimum background sound from 6 speakers in darkness. There will be 2 cubes like installation standing parallel structure that public can activate LED lights and 6 channel sound in the dark space. Only way to observe and experience SHiKAKU 07 is walking around and be part of the installation. A sensors built into the structures create unlimited variations of light symphony.

  3. THE ARK
    A site specific installation by Romain Tardy and Squeaky Lobster
    Proyecta Oaxaca, Ethnobotanical garden of Oaxaca, Mexico

    Concept & Visual design by Romain Tardy
    Music composed by Squeaky Lobster
    Project management & production by Nicolas Boritch

    The Ark is a site specific installation, commissioned by and presented during Proyecta Oaxaca, festival de diseño y artes digitales.

    The Ark is built around the cacti that line the Aljibe, at the heart of the Ethnobotanical Garden of Oaxaca.

    Adopting a poetic approach, The Ark gives voice to the garden’s plants, participants in the work, the beating heart of the space and an unpredictable choir.

    Telling their story, revealing their fantasised and fantastical character, The Ark is the mise-en-abîme of the trail. A three part audio-visual installation, it unfolds like a movie set in space, in which the wandering spectator plays the role of the camera.

    Proyecta Oaxaca
    On the invitation of Proyecta Oaxaca, several artists from the ANTIVJ visual label have devised four visual and sonic works to be installed at the heart of the Ethnobotanical Garden in Oaxaca. Conceived of as a trail of light, these in-situ works offered the chance to (re)discover a singular and magical location in a particularly unique way – by opening the garden to the public at night.

    A trail of the senses, in several variations, it also presents spectators the perspective of four artists on this atypical space, in which ancient nature and new technology come face to face, like a distant echo of the ancestral techniques that have allowed for its conservation.

    The trail consisted of the following four works:
    Onion Skin, by Olivier Ratsi & Thomas Vaquié
    The Ark, by Romain Tardy & Squeaky Lobster
    3Destruct | Oaxaca, by Yannick Jacquet, Thomas Vaquié & Jeremie Peeters
    Réplica, by Laurent Delforge & Thomas Vaquié
    All projects managed by Nicolas Boritch.
