( Light and Sound Installation by Collectif Coin et Nohista / 30mn )
Cyclique is a light and sound installation composed of a matrix of 256 balloons inflated with helium and equipped with LED lights. The floating 700 square-meter structure changes its shape as the wind flows through the balloons, immersing viewers in an artificial synaesthetic landscape where the soundtrack becomes the orchestra conductor.
Director - set design - concept : Maxime Houot

This is a personal project. I wanted to make some infinite loops for istockphoto and I wanted to make a paper shader. The finished clips are actually only 4-5 seconds long but they can go on for ever. Then I felt like putting it all together for a little.. Mindfulness-short.

In January 2010, we sat together in earnest to look back at years of working together. We wanted to rediscover our inspirations for getting into the industry and identify the things that were killing our inspiration. We talked about what stories we had to tell and what emotions we wanted people to feel. We all agreed that our best work had yet to be conceived. Out of that conversation was born the idea of creating a visual manifesto. Each statement in this manifesto is a short work that stands on its own, but together the collection of works will form a vision of who we are and where our passions lie. Each of the works is also conceived and led by one of the artists on our team, who pitches it to the group. The work is then executed with the support of the entire studio.
The first of these works, entitled 'SEED' is now complete. Our longtime collaborator John Black of Cypheraudio: cypheraudio.com worked closely with us early on in the process to help establish the mood of the piece. As the visuals evolved, so too did the sound, going through several re-inventions before settling on the final. Please Check back to this page for more installments in this series of works!

If you leave is the title of the music video promoting Sadly by your side, the debut album of Davide Cairo a.k.a. Edisonnoside, a researcher in Fabrica’s music team. Completely created using 3D and 2D animations, the video is a travel through unreal landscapes, real emotions and distances, bringing back memories and lost moments to life.
