The series called Topomovies offers moving digital architectures whose walls are made up of film sequences. The structures loom up from the space and slowly move towards viewers, spinning on their axes. They continue to draw near, so much so that viewers find themselves travelling through the structures. Thus the buildings seem to offer them their secret insides, reveal to them their interior before disappearing… only to be reborn a few seconds later at the back of the screen.
The images that make it possible to envision the architectures are generally drawn from the abstract world of pure mathematical forms or the world of organic elements. Viewers encounter tori, the diabolo’s hourglass shape, Dupin cyclides, DNA double helices, shells, minerals and even symbolic forms like the Tower of Babel.
They also grasp that each topological form is an archive unfolding ceaselessly in time; consulting one constitutes for them an event that always proves singular. These archives are mental sculptures whose images offer multiple memory accesses.
