Surrealism

ABOUT

Entropia is an immersive audio visual performance initiated by Fraction's work on 3D ambisonics experimental music and joined by Louis-Philippe St Arnault, Nature Graphique and Creation Ex Nihilo to explore spatial interaction between sound, physical light and 360° visuals. It aims to create an immersive scape made of interconnected layers of medias. It's based on a audio reactive geodesic led filled sphere that keeps a constant interaction with immersive visuels projection, and is synchronized to the sound. Sound artist stands inside the sphere while visual team performs real time pixels mapping and generative visuels. Audience is placed in the interstice created by the duality of physical light of the sphere and external walls projection, filled by cutting-edge sonic material, and spatialized using 3D real time programming

Entropia is a co-production with SAT and benefited from the Residency program in research and creation of the Society for Art and Technology - sat.qc.ca
The first iteration of the performance has been presented during IX Symposium on immersive experience (may 2015) ix.sat.qc.ca

BACKGROUND

The project started in 2014, when sound Artist Fraction, as laureat of Institut Français for France/Quebec digital field program, was designing a new piece in which on the technical aspect, he would redefine sound spatialization potentiality for immersive electronic music and expand his capacity to manipulate sound material in real time. Few months later, he's joined by Louis Philippe St-Arnault to design a geodesic led filled structure as the complementary lightning system for the piece. Later, they teamed up with Nature Graphique and Creation Ex Nihilo to create the visual content for pixel mapping, and generative visuels projection

IDEA and INSPIRATION

Literally, Entropia comes from greek etymology ἐντροπία which means « transformation». It characterizes the degree of disorganization or lack of a information on a system.
More precisely, in thermodynamics, while the first principle is a principle of conservation of energy, the second principle, is the principle of evolution. It states that any real transformation occurs with inevitable increase in global disorder; disorder measured by entropy. This law involves several questionings for our own civilisation progress and our duty to necessarily think of a sustainable development.
ENTROPIA is also thought as an architectural audio reactive object, paying tribute to the ideas of Richard Buckmeister Fuller, architect and theorist of geodesic design. For Fuller, the geodesic dome was architect's response to questions based on our duty to implement sustainable development in a finite world.
Playing on the symbol of the dome, the work wants to offer a wide aesthetic response and provide an opportunity for the viewer to take up these issues through a multi-modal experience (sound, architecture, design, visual)

Surrealism is a cultural movement that began in the early 1920s, and is best known for its visual artworks and writings. The aim was to "resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality."

Surrealist works feature the element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions and non sequitur; however, many Surrealist artists and writers regard their work as an expression of the philosophical movement first and foremost, with the works being an artefact.

    A short visual essay based on Pierre Bourdieu's sociological concept of Habitus. It consists of several vignettes of simple everyday practices, each performed three times by four different individuals. Shots of the same action are overlaid in a mosaic to showcase fine differences in the execution of seemingly innate sequences of movements. All the while we hear Bourdieu not answering the question of whether his concept leaves any room for individuality by escaping into generalisations. Humans are not robots and the beauty of life lies within these fine differences and "faults".
