    Interactive installation
    Objets-monde is interested in the traces that humans leave on the environment as well as the way in which these become an intrinsic part of our ecosystem. Abandoned objects, such as cars and computer screens, were captured with the help of photogrammetry to create a video collage composed of extracts from reality. Re-contextualized in disproportionately large proportions within landscapes seen from afar, these objects stand out like the ruins of monumental architecture. The absence of life as well as the luminous atmosphere of the work create a tension between apocalyptic feeling and nostalgia, between precious object and waste, between idealized nature and the indelible presence of human traces. These vestiges of the Anthropocene are deployed within an interactive installation in collaboration with Guillaume Arseneault, and a soundtrack composed by Roger Tellier-Craig. This is the single-channel version of the project.

    Two Prints installation
    Radiances is a formal research aimed at creating a parallel between the aesthetics of the digital image and that of traditional painting. A combination of various techniques was used, such as 3D animation, video synthesis and digital manipulations, to bring out textures which evoke, without imitating, layers of paint, brush strokes, reliefs. These paintings in motion suggest a contemplative state where landscapes evolve slowly over time, freeing the observer from a narrative and linear montage, while maintaining the temporal aspect of the video.

    Inscape, 2019
    Print installation
    Inscape is a single channel video mixing 3D animation and video synthesis. By an interplay between points of views, depth of fields and textures, new details are revealed, transforming the space into abstract compositions. Inspired by the paintings of Kay Sage, Inscape depicts a psychological landscape, where perspectives are constantly shifting.
