ABSTRACT

FRGMENTS is both an installation and a live performance. While permanently seeking a signal, an expression, a significant clue which could make me understanding the other better, I use the face expression as a possible emotions emitter expressing what we have in the deepest. By using the system I programmed, I show video portraits, I overlay them, I cut them into various fragments as for trying all possible combinations, for making multiple impassive faces a new one that may have or show a feeling, an emotion. I’m using the Cutup aesthetic and mathematical technics (Gysin & Burroughs) as a research method for exploring, discovering again a raw matter. I’m also trying to fill in the nerve racking and deafening silence coming from these inert faces by using specific sound frequencies and granular textures which spread and stretch through time and spaces as permanently disrupted continua as for pushing the audience to feel the fury I have while I’m zooming, digging, trying to understand who the other is and what she or he feels. FRGMENTS’ program helps me to generate each time a new changing and unstable matter in real-time, to combine, to wrap, to cut et glue it again, creating each micro-second a new world of possibilities.

FRGMENTS is commissioned by Asia Culture Center, Gwangju, South Korea and supported by SEED Lab.

FRGMENTS is based on 4K video portraits shot systematically with same lighting and movement conditions. Its core, based on Max 7 framework specifically coded program, uses highly-advanced techniques for supporting a new expressive and generative aesthetic pushing the artist beyond its cold borders’ of abstractions.
