    'City Lights' is the final chapter from my "Trilogy of Light" time lapse series that began a couple years ago with 'LA Light' and then followed up with 'Nightfall'. It was an nightly adventure that took me to almost every angle of Los Angeles. It was an exercise in patience. A lesson in light. An understanding of what it is to live among each other and to understand the system and order of a city, the seemingly complex organics that make it up and the life form that the city truly is. A visualization of sonder. It was a daily jaunt to watch the arterial freeway systems pump car cells through its body and channel them to the capillaric avenues that are our neighborhoods and homes. It was a chance to break away from the 70mph freeway perspective and to observe the sun slip from view and watch the electric dance of nightfall begin. It was challenging. It was frustrating. Definitely dangerous at times. Sometimes it hurt. I was chased. Yelled at. Warned. But the overall context of things learned, people met, things seen, and places discovered over the past three years shaped who I am today. I didn't always love Los Angeles but I learned to and discovered that this city is much more than temperate weather, palm trees, pretty girls, and beaches; to me the true beauty behind the city lies hidden on the other end of a rusted fire escape to a view no one else has seen.

    I'm looking forward to the next chapter of my film making career where I will be concentrating on narrative and documentary films.

    Thanks for watching, reading, and supporting my films.

    Cheers,
    Colin

  2. 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.
