    MGNTRN (pronounced [MAGNOTRON]), Romain Tardy’s latest project, is an immersive, large-scale audiovisual installation mixing projection mapping, physical laser-cut structures used as a projection canvas, and various types of LEDs to create a unique multi-sensorial experience. Believe it or not, there’s even a tiny robot physically operating the LEDs from a pretty massive Ferris wheel. Inspired by psychedelic sci-fi references from the 70’s like Sun-Ra’s movie “Space is the place” MGNTRN invites the public to an imaginary journey through space and time. An intense physical experience with a multi-channel video setup and 8-channel soundtrack composed by electronic music producer Squeaky Lobster. The name of the piece itself, MGNTRN [MAGNOTRON], comes from a space-themed pinball created by the American manufacturer Gottlieb in 1974, and illustrated by Gordon Morison, who made some of the most iconic pinball backglass drawings in the 1970’s. Starfields, black holes, kawai characters and retrofuturistic spaceships as well as vintage arcade games are the haunting spirits of this outdoor audiovisual installation where the sky is the limit. This installation was developed as a site specific project for Proyecta Digital Arts and Design Festival 2014, that took place in Puebla, Mexico from the 9th to the 11th of June 2014.

This installation was developed as a site specific project for Proyecta Digital Arts and Design Festival 2014, that took place in Puebla, Mexico from the 9th to the 11th of June. Proyecta, as the eponym design and digital arts platform, was the producer of the piece. ESPAÑOL / MGNTRN (pronunciado [MAGNOTRON]), el más reciente proyecto de Romain Tardy es una instalación audiovisual inmersiva de gran escala que combina la técnica de proyección en mapping sobre estructuras realizadas con corte láser empleadas como canvas y diferentes tipos de luces de LED para crear una experiencia multi-sensorial. Aunque parezca inverosímil, incluso se creó un pequeño robot que físicamente operaba el sistema de luces de la gran rueda de la fortuna. Inspirada en referencias psicodélicas de ciencia ficción de los 70 como la película de Sun-Ra “Space is the place” MGNTRN invita al público a un viaje imaginario a través del tiempo y el espacio. Una intensa experiencia física a través de múltiples canales de audio y video como parte central del montaje de la pieza. El nombre de la pieza misma MGNTRN [MAGNOTRON], viene de un juego de pinball con motivos espaciales creado por la empresa norteamericana Gottlieb en 1974 y que fue ilustrado por Gordon Morrison, quien creó algunos de los más icónicos diseños de pinball durante la década de 1970. Campos de estrellas, hoyos negros, personajes kawai en naves espaciales retrofuturistas combinadas con juegos de arcade son los espíritus que habitan esta instalación audiovisual. Fue desarrollada como una pieza de sitio específico para Proyecta Festival de Diseño y Artes Digitales 2014 que tuvo lugar en Puebla, México. Proyecta como plataforma también fungió como productor de la pieza.

          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. More info at www.antivj.com 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.

              Paganism (from Latin paganus, meaning "country dweller", "rustic") is a blanket term, typically used to refer to religious traditions which are polytheistic or indigenous. It is primarily used in a historical context, referring to Greco-Roman polytheism as well as the polytheistic traditions of Europe and North Africa before Christianization. [Wikipedia] This installation, shown on the main facade of the Museum of archaeology of Toulouse, south of France, was inspired by a scultpure of a bacchanalian head from the 3rd century (see picture below). This sculpture had been found at the end of the 17th century and exhibited as an example of an antique pagan idol since then. Using the idea of polymorphism that is a feature of the ancient gods, the head becomes almost invisible when integrated to the structure made of an abstract network of straight lines. The light will reveal several patterns, from abstract constellations to enigmatic symbols that will affect the rest of the building. This work is a new collaboration with the musician Squeaky lobster. Thanks to Jardins Synthétiques festial, MSR museum of antiquities, Toulouse. _______________________ http://www.romaintardy.com http://soundcloud.com/squeaky-lobster

                  O (Omicron) A permanent installation directed by Romain Tardy & Thomas Vaquié Hala Stulecia, Wroclaw, Poland. -> Be sure to watch the making of the piece here: https://vimeo.com/41475403 _________________________ When opened, Hala Stulecia was the largest reinforced concrete structure in the world. With a diameter of 65m it was home to the largest dome built since the Pantheon in Rome eighteen centuries earlier. The piece proposed for the Centennial Hall of Wroclaw is based around the notion of timelessness in architecture, and the idea of what future has meant throughout the 20th century. Taking the 1910’s as a starting point (the dome was erected in 1913), historical and artistic references were used to reveal the architecture of the space. By using references such as Fritz Lang’s Metropolis or the utopian projects of Archigram to confront the different visions of the future at different times, Romain Tardy and Thomas Vaquié were interested in trying to create a vision of a future with no precise time reference. A timeless future.

With a diameter of 65m it was home to the largest dome built since the Pantheon in Rome eighteen centuries earlier. The Centennial Hall was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006. Taking the 1910’s as a starting point (the dome was erected in 1913), historical and artistic references were used to reveal the architecture of the space, its timeless and, more surprisingly, very modern dimension. A deliberately minimalist visual aesthetic allowed to highlight the very architecture of Hala Stulecia’s dome and re-affirm its place at the core of the piece.
