    «The sound sculptures and installations of Zimoun are graceful, mechanized works of playful poetry, their structural simplicity opens like an industrial bloom to reveal a complex and intricate series of relationships, an ongoing interplay between the «artificial» and the «organic». It‘s an artistic research of simple and elegant systems to generate and study complex behaviors in sound and motion. Zimoun creates sound pieces from basic components, often using multiples of the same prepared mechanical elements to examine the creation and degeneration of patterns.» Tim Beck

    «It is a poetic and humorous absurdity we find in Zimoun’s work, which opens up a wide, refreshing and enriching space for discoveries, associations and a multitude of approaches.» Nina Terry

    «The clean, elegant sound sculptures combine visual, sonic, and spatial elements in an organically balanced entirely artwork. Using simple and well- conceived mechanical systems, Zimouns‘s work transforms and activates the space.»
    Jury Prix Ars Electronica 2010

    «Zimoun creates complex kinetic sound sculptures by arranging industrially produced parts according to seemingly simple rules. Using motors, wires, ventilators, etc.., he creates closed systems that develop their own behavior and rules similarly to artificial creatures. Once running, they are left to themselves and go through an indeterminable process of (de)generation.
    These quasi autonomous creatures exist in an absolutely synthetic sphere of lifeless matter. However, within the precise, determinist systems creative categorioes suddenly reappear, such as deviation, refusal and transcience out of which complex patterns of behavior evolve.» Node10

  3. Mont Orgueil Castle set the scene for a new kind of battle. The ancient structure stood immutable as a torrent of light was unleashed by the creative minds at seeper, bursting upon the old stones with a new-era vengeance. Art and technology, in perfect congress, mounted a spectacular assault upon this icon of a violent history.

    The result was not fear, but wonder. The hill exploded with life and art; organic and digital forms seamlessly taking their places as part of the ageing monument, repainting it, eager to bring us into renewed contact with our past. Because art reconnects us with our history, creating new relationships with things long dead. And seeper put a new face on this old creature, letting it breath again for a new generation.

  4. Building projection is a technique where you can create an animation onto a building while fitting it to the contours of the building itself.

    This clip shows a project done in Zoetermeer, The Netherland to promote an upcoming event. This was a flat surface.

    And a project in Leuven, Belgium to celebrate the renovation of the church.
