Weather Desktop Project

The ‘Weather Desktop Project’ was created at the invitation of Copie Copains Club, a collective inviting artists to copy other artists. My proposal is a very localized variation on the ‘Weather Project‘ by Olafur Eliasson. What if you could stare at the sun from your computer? I’m spending more time with my computer than with […]

Avance/Retour/Rapides

An audiovisual piece allows the user to explore an indefinite passage in Budapest between Dób and Kiraly streets. The passage starts somewhere on a grid and ends somewhere else. As the grid fills itself, the user discovers the multiple entries and ends of the same passage. The user is trapped somehow while a strange sound […]

Miss tek

The symmetrical piece of Avance/Retour/Rapides, Miss Tek is its bug. An error in the code for the final piece created Miss Tek: it appeared as a beautiful gift from the programming language. Miss Tek became the abstract version of an infinite passage. Transitions of pixels and squares that are accompanied by a suggestive electronic music […]

Dov – Kiraly koz

Dov-Kiraly Koz is a piece that reflects on the urban passage with a multiplication of layers: the user passes through photographs like the he would pass through the passage in Budapest that the pictures represent. Moreover, the piece works on the idea of verticality and flat pictures as opposed to the horizontal perspective in depth […]

Young ordinary woman

In a passage of Munich, a woman is followed. Four videos are showing traces of her passage, her transitions: she moves from one video to the other, almost subrepticely. The videos are framed as paintings and depict scenaries in the passage that are peculiar, always adding an extra surface, between the lens of the camera […]

Encoding failure

Failing to encode the videos shot for ‘Young ordinary woman’ for the web, I found myself with 4 QT videos who are showing a series of words and numbers, in rhythm. They don’t mean anything but I discovered a hidden abstract world ‘behind’ the encoded videos. Credits & Infos Authors: Joëlle Bitton Year: 2001 System: […]

Plakatieren Verboten

An image that will never be completed, and yet that will form a musical composition, never the same one. “Plakatieren Verboten” or it is forbidden to post on walls. But the subversion comes from the music. This sound interaction site was commissioned by the KunstRadio/ORF in Vienna and conceived with the composer Rupert Huber (BerlinerTheorie […]

The Rest Is Silence

The Rest Is Silence

For the one who remains silent, silence is a moment of solitude, of retreat. For the lover, it’s the moment of interpretation. There is a reason to silence. What is that person trying to tell or not to tell? Is the silence upsetting or is it accommodating? Meanwhile, it matters to say anything just to […]

Palpitations puts in parallel raw facts on sexuality (from the different sexual positions to explanation of STD’s, from the sexual orientations to relationship dynamics) and the perspective of memory on love and relationships (encounters, separations, solitude, etc). The user navigates between the two panels: on one side, facts on sexuality and on the other, people’s […]
