Gestes (2013)

Video installation
Camera prompters, sreens, mapping software.

Display
2013 | La Chambre Blanche, Québec

Short description
This video installation presents stages of a movement that starts out as a repetition then eases off. Two prompters hang from the ceiling: the right one shows a mechanism activated by a hand, while the hand is stretching out in the left prompter. I am trying to highlight a certain differentiation between tasks and actions.

Thanks
Nicolas Désy

Station II (2013)

Kinetic sculpture
Stainless steel, aluminium, video.

Display
2013 | La Chambre Blanche, Québec

Short description
My desire is to take the measurement of task-oriented time. In the making of this video, I stuck to the following proposal: keeping the mechanism of the kinetic sculpture rolling until weariness set in. The project remains open. New captions can be added to the sequence.

Thanks

Sans titre (2009)

Sculptural installation
Stainless steel, wood, acrylic.

Display
2009 | Galerie l'Oeuvre de l'autre, Chicoutimi, Qc, Canada

Short description
I examined the aesthetics of an architecture-oriented 3D modelling and mapping software. The apparatus takes the form of a city model onto which free interventions are welcomed. Visitors can put inscriptions on small slabs and add them where they please, among stainless steel sculptures.

Installation sculpturale
Acier inoxydable, bois, acrylique.

Diffusion
2009 Galerie l'Oeuvre de l'autre, Chicoutimi, Qc, Canada

Résumé
Je me suis intéressée à l'esthétique d'un logiciel de modélisation 3D et de cartographie, orienté vers l'architecture. Le tout prend la forme d'une maquette de ville sur laquelle il est possible d'intervenir de façon entièrement libre. Les visiteurs peuvent faire des inscriptions sur des petites plaquettes et les ajouter où bon leur semble, au travers des sculptures en acier inoxydable.

Était présentée en galerie avec une autre oeuvre, au mur : Tocqueville.

La gire (2009)

Video installation
Camera prompteurs, screens, sensors, interactivity software.

Display
2009 | SCAN, Chicoutimi, Qc, Canada

Short description
This project is about experimenting with interactivity. Its content is by Annick Martel (Phare Sud). The installation first presents the video projection framed by objects hanging down from the ceiling. With the help of sensors, the projection ends up on the floor. While the visitor moves around the objects, the fluttering between two states happens. This project has been presented to students enrolled in James Partaik’s classes.

Thanks

Carnets de l'îlot (2013)

Micro-edition
and open data for citizens

Paper, Quebec city's data set, GIS software.

Display
2014 | Marché de l'îlot, Québec, Qc, Canada

Short description
The appropriation of open data by citizens does not happen by itself. I offered ten notebooks to workers and residents of the îlot des Tanneurs area in the St-Roch district, in Quebec City. They had the opportunity to express themselves in writing, and we took part in a consultative process for urban planning. I also suggested setting up a mapping workshop.

Thanks
