Mecaniques Discursives, behind the scene

Mécaniques Discursives
An installation by Fred Penelle & Yannick Jacquet

“While the passage of time seems to accelerate every day, Fred Penelle and Yannick Jacquet offer a pause, a suspension, a breath. A strange mechanism stretches across the wall, populated with shadowy chimeras. They are mysterious and yet somehow familiar. Is this a laboratory experiment or the plan for a future network?

3Destruct and the Cathedral of concrete

3Destruct is an installation by Yannick Jacquet, Jérémie Peeters and Thomas Vaquié.
The very first presentation of 3Destruct took place back in 2007 at the Contemporary Art Bienniale of Louvain La Neuve in Belgium. A new version of the piece was later developed at the Lieu Unique exhibition space in Nantes, France, during the 2011 Scopitone festival (ie. Antivj blog post http://blog.antivj.com/2012/3destruct-scopitone/)

Since then, 3Destruct has been exhibited in Mexico, Russia, Switzerland and France.

Magic Geography

The series of site specific visual and sonic installations created by several artists of the ANTIVJ visual label on the invitation of PROYECTA Oaxaca, international festival of  design & digital arts, as part of the Ethnobotanical garden of Oaxaca, Mexico, explores the mediation between the natural and the artificial. Light follows the organic behavior of plants and creates depths of the perceptual field in order to vivify a lively dialogue between computer-generated elements and the natural world.

Bacteria farming and Software design.

This is an article about my creative process behind Paelodictyon, a site specific installation that I developed in collaboration with Yannick Jacquet and Thomas Vaquié. Since this was our first big project integrating Cinder in production from the early stages, and because I used it to create most of the visual content, this post is going to have a big emphasis on creative coding and software development. I’ll try not to get too technical, but still, you’ve been warned, this is a geeky post!

WHITE ROADS IN THE RED MATRIX AT BIAN 2012

Last June, I was invited to show my new installation “White Roads in the Red Matrix” for the first time, at BIAN (Biennial International Digital Arts), Montreal.
The event, organized by Elektra festival, aims to reveal the effervescence of the digital art in Quebec and the maturity of the discipline internationally. Other artists  such as Carsten Nicolai, Herman Kolgen, Ryoji Ikeda, Robert Lepage, also presented their personal work which was mostly installations.

The piece I presented is a light and sound sculpture whose elements are suspended in mid-airspace, and fragmented in a space. Read more →
