Centre culturel NDG, Montréal, Qc. Canada. (2017) / part of the event 1 million d'Horizons curated by Nathalie Bachand.
Inspired by the psychoanalysis notion of “Scopic drive”, this video kinetic installation explores in the “white-box” space the dialectic of looking and being looked at.
2 suspended mobiles structures, in each one feature a 3D printed shape in plaster and fiberglass with video cameras encapsulated inside it. It is 7 cameras, 2 mirrors, a numbers of crystal chandelier pieces and cables, slowly randomly put in motion by 6 mini-propelers controled by Arduino and producing sound. On the wall are displayed the video output produced by the 7 cameras on 7 small monitors plus 2 larger one with video delay.
