LOUIS-PHILIPPE RONDEAU [CA/QC]
6th International Digital Art Biennial
Arsenal Contemporary Art Montreal
12.01.2022 - 02.05.2023
In his works, Louis-Philippe Rondeau develops devices that explore self-representation and performance in a playful and unconventional manner. His research-creation approach reveals as much a search for simplicity of design for users, as an interest in the complexity of computer code. Situating his research in the context of media archaeology he seeks to reinterpret forgotten and marginalized media forms using contemporary digital tools. He is a professor at the School of Digital Arts, Animation and Design at UQAC (NAD-UQAC), and his practice stems from his work in the field of digital visual effects in Montreal.
RÉSONANCES, 2021, with Milan Gervais - Interactive installation
Wood, steel, acrylic, LED display, computer, electronic components, 3.8 m x 5.6 m x 3 m
RÉSONANCES is a metaphor for the passage of time. However, instead of expressing the linearity of time, this interactive installation evokes the way in which the actions of the present are overlapping with those of the past. Like a visual and sound echo, RESONANCES represents our previous actions that resurface, amplifying the present, and becoming in turn past, like a perpetual temporal mise en abyme. This visual and sound loop allows the interactor to choreograph their present by building it on their own past, in a playful and singular way.
