Ledoux Corps is the presentation of this project on the occasion of the Nuit Bleue 2008 in the Royal Saltworks of Arc et Senans. The installation was presented under the shape of a conviviality space, conposed of wooden palletts identical to the one that we could find on the whole festival. A geometrical layout of spaces of discussion was settled in the center of a hall of the Saltworks, inviting the spectator to sit down and to feel a paradoxical space: between the conviviality of a zone of discussion and the physical tension inferred by the vibration of objects. The visitor became a kind of resonator and was as one with the vibrations produced by the site.
Any body or assembly of solid bodies can be made to vibrate by transmitting a periodic excitation whose frequency corresponds to one of its internal frequencies of resonance. This property is used on a hall of the Saltworks of Arc et Senans built by C.N Ledoux. The various present elements are put in vibration by low frequencies via a computer program that analyzes the resonances of the site. Every element produces then its own sound signature. The architectural space is so discovered in the form of a complex volume but also through the resonant specificities of its various components.
