        Starfield is an installation where a swing is used to create a large interactive starry sky. With a Kinect installed behind the swing and a video projector, the software creates a galaxy of stars in which the user wanders with the rhythm of his swing. Created with openFrameworks, the application allows to configure almost any type of swing. With anaglyph glasses, a 3D mode gives an even more immerse experience.

            “Locomotive”, the most recent addition to the mosaic screen installation in the foyer of Place des Arts, is a fantastical portrayal of a human machine. The context resembles an elaborate organic dominos game. It begins with a musical impulse and is accompanied by an inexorable advancement of light. Human flesh makes up a patchwork of glittering metallic members - which have the luster of new pistons and bolts - engendering a hybrid mass. Caught in awkward tension, the bodies quiver in suspension, the movement becoming increasingly intense until released by the passing impulse. The carefully synchronized three-dimensional chain reaction of image, sound and light dehumanizes the body while simultaneously makes us smile. Uncomfortable yet intrigued, the eye of the passer cannot turn away from the machine. The complexity of the work lies in its ambiguity of being funny, monstrous, and sensual all at the same time. The totality of this intriguing puzzle is best seen by taking a step back. However, in order to observe and appreciate the detail of the movement, it is equally engaging to advance forward. Each gear, wheel and suture plays its role to tie the whole piece together. For this project, in lieu of creating a work that is intrinsically promotional, Place des Arts has taken the risk of acting as a sponsor and distributor of this purely artistic and cinematic endeavor. Conceived with the intention of using the proposed space - its limitations and constraints – in the pursuit giving life to a custom made creation, “Locomotive” highlights the artistic potential of the mosaic screens in the foyer. ______________________________________________________________________________________________ L’œuvre "Locomotive" qui vient nouvellement habiller la mosaïque d’écran du hall de la Place des Arts est une machine humaine chimérique. Un jeu de domino organique qui se met en marche sous l’impulsion de la musique et l’avancée inexorable de la lumière. Les corps en tension, fébriles et tressaillant s’activent, leur mouvement s’amplifie et s’intensifie jusqu’au relâchement qui suit le passage de la vague. Le patchwork des membres métalliques et luisants comme autant de pistons et de boulons suffisent à engendrer cette machine hybride, sans autre accessoire que la chair. La réaction en chaîne tridimensionnelle –image, son, lumière- minutieusement synchronisée, déshumanise les corps tout en nous faisant esquisser un sourire. Mal à l’aise et intrigué, l’œil du passant ne peut se détourner de cette machine à la fois complexe et drôle, monstrueuse et sensuelle. On se recule pour embrasser du regard la globalité de ce casse tête intrigant, avant de mieux observer les détails de chaque rouage, de chaque mouvement, de chaque suture. On peut en rire; on peut également en frissonner. Pour ce projet la Place Des Arts a pris le risque d’agir à titre de commanditaire et de diffuseur d’une pièce purement artistique. Elle a coordonné et appuyé cette œuvre cinématographique non pas dans le but de véhiculer un message promotionnel mais pour mettre en valeur la mosaïque d’écrans, pour utiliser l’espace proposé -avec ses limites et contraintes- et donner vie à une création qui l’épouse parfaitement. ______________________________________________________________________________________________ Director: Thibaut Duverneix Creation: Thibaut Duverneix & Mathieu Léger Choreographer: Ashlea Watkin Production: Departement Line production: Antler Films Executive producers: Sach Baylin Stern - Thibaut Duverneix Producer: Josh Usheroff Cinematographer: Christophe Collette Makeup: Anicko Bouchard Art Direction: Mathieu Léger Editing - Post Production - Grading: Thibaut Duverneix Music composer: David Drury Music producer: Christian Olsen & David Drury Bass player: Sage Reynolds Talents: Allison Blakley Victoria Diamond Jérémy Fiset Milan Gervais Emily Gualtiery Lael Stellick Andrew Tay Ashlea Watkin 1st camera assistant: Mariane Laporte Grip: Max Robert Electro: Christian Mouzard PA: Mathieu Lefrancois-Gauvreau Intern: Hans Bobanovits DIT: Alexis Vanier Watchout Integration: Thibaut Duverneix & Philippe Larocque Special thanks to: Place des Arts Sophie Labelle Samuel Rigaux Lucie Ladhui Cinepool Cineffects Département Caméra Scapin Staging

                • CLOUD: An Interactive Sculpture Made from 6,000 Light Bulbs

                  September 15, 2012 You can also find us here https://www.facebook.com/incandescentcloud and here www.incandescentcloud.com CLOUD is a large-scale interactive sculpture created from 6,000 light bulbs (new and burnt out) by Canadian artists Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett. The piece utilizes everyday domestic light bulbs and pull strings, re-imagining their potential to create wonder and inspire collaboration. As part of the process of creating the sculpture, the artists collected burnt out incandescent light bulbs from the surrounding community, forging an informal relationship with non-artists, reducing costs, and asking audiences to reconsider household items in an alternative context. During exhibition, viewers interact with CLOUD by initiating impromptu collaborations, working as a collective to turn the entire sculpture on and off. How CLOUD works: The hand-bent steel substructure of the sculpture is covered in a skin of incandescent light bulbs (new and burnt out), and rear-lit from within by 250 compact fluorescent bulbs, pulling a total power of approximately 20 amps (the equivalent of two household outlets). Each of these bulbs is attached to a pull-string, allowing viewers to control the illumination of the structure – like lightning in the CLOUD above them. Editions of CLOUD have appeared at Nuit Blanche Calgary (Canada) and Garage Center for Contemporary Culture as the centerpiece of Art Experiment 2013 (Moscow, Russia). A third evolution of the sculpture was created in June 2013 in Chicago, USA. Entitled CLOUD CEILING, this rendition is a permanent installation (sans pull-chains) in Progress Bar, utilizing motion sensors and over 15,000 light bulbs. Sponsors: Alberta College of Art + Design, The Nuit Blanche Foundation, The City of Calgary, Calgary Arts Development Authority, Calgary Public Arts, Calgary 2012, and The Awesome Foundation (Calgary chapter).

                      One Hundred and Eight is an interactive wall-mounted Installation mainly made out of ordinary garbage bags. Controlled by a microcontroller each of them is selectively inflated and deflated in turn by two cooling fans. Although each plastic bag is mounted stationary the sequences of inflation and deflation create the impression of lively and moving creatures which waft slowly around like a shoal. But as soon a viewer comes close it instantly reacts by drawing back and tentatively following the movements of the observer. As long as he remains in a certain area in front of the installation it dynamically reacts to the viewers motion. As soon it does no longer detect someone close it reorganizes itself after a while and gently restarts wobbling around. www.nilsvoelker.com 2.40 x 1.80 m fans, plastic bags, MDF, relays, a camera, a computer, a microcontroller and countless screws summer/autumn 2010
