Research on digital imaging devices, with Dayton Taylor
Digital Air Time Track systems NY, in Geneva, Switzerland, 2003
The Novel by Jorge Louis Borges, tells how this book came into the possession of a fictional version of Borges himself, its pages are uncountable, ever-changing, without beginning or end. This subject revealing issues such as uncertainty, cross and collapsing time, recasting and reconciling mental and physical space put forth the following visual experimentation in 2004. The possibilities offered by a digital time track array, through shoot and footage constitutes visual ground matter for narrative experimentation enhancing and restructuring time and space representation, and extending the possibilities of screen and camera beyond image capturing and projecting devices. Collaborative work with Julian Roby, Pius Zoll and Daniel Sciboz.
Workshop with Luc Courschesnes at Geneva University of Art and Design, Switzerland, 2005
Exploration of the transformation of vision and perception of self in using an optic device to photograph all-round horizon. Main theoretical and experimental questions were : the place of the observer as the centre of the observable, how does a panoramic immersive image open new grounds for interpretation, inviting an observer a priori exterior to the image to become a constitutive element of the image, hence subjective, and to propose his own interpretation of the world. What are the implications on the logic of representation emanating from such a system in which the individual is included in the representation system.
Jouable, Gesture in interactive video
Workshop with Jean Louis Boissier at Geneva University of Art and Design, Switzerland, 2004
Exhibited at Playable, a digital interactive installations exhibition, Geneva, Kyoto, Paris
Exploration of the processes of analysis and description of gesture in an interactive video environment. Interaction was to take place only via a knob device such as a Power Mate.
Main theoretical and experimental questions were : how can one represent gesture through an interactive video image; were does the relevance of such a process lie in figuration and how can the interactive video image constitute it’s own interface.
Seminar and workshop, consultant on exhibition setting Geneva University of Art and Design, Switzerland, Paris University, France, Museum of Arts and History Geneva, Switzerland, 2004
Concrete experimentation of the first part of the research project ” Museums in transformation” and “the Art of exhibiting moving images”, carried out through a series of seminars and workshops.The “Defilement ” project consisted in the exhibition of moving images by establishing a relationship between different pieces of artwork, revealing the perception of movement by the viewer through the exhibition, thus revealing the onthologie of the moving image.
Workshop with Enrique Fontanilles and Hervé Graumann, at Geneva University of Art and Design, Switzerland, 2002
Exploration of the potential of multi-chaptering video through conceptualising its access, from the point of view of a commercial broadcasting medium. Main theoretical and experimental questions were : how to shift and divert this technical characteristic of the medium, what artistic application can be given to the medium in a global dimension, how to make playability possible and relevant on a narrative and aesthetic level.
Vision machine and memory machine
Workshop with Masaki Fujihata, at Geneva University of Art and Design, Switzerland, 2005
Exploration of aesthetic and representative potential of the Gps. Main theoretical and experimental questions were : which models of time and space representation can be produced with this device, how to approach new models of memorising, visualising, interpreting and using this data in the production and portrayal of an individual’s experience of movement or migration.
