Uninvisible (setup - creation)

Uninvisible is a stream of water subjected to low frequency sound and light.

The installation aims at opening perspectives on the invisible. Decomposition of water movement is observed until it stops : the flow becomes still and suspended in space. By appreciably altering the sound frequencies, water resumes its flow, decomposed.

With the support of Transcultures and Arts2

Alexis Choplain

Currently student in Master at the Visual Arts School of Mons ( IDM-Images in the space section) , Alexis Choplain previously studied architecture and fine arts in Marseille, before settling in Mexico a year to learn lithography. Today, his research is based on the instant that he materializes by explosive sculptures.

Composer of electronic music, he also creates sound installations with considerations of temporality, and audio streams traveling in space. According to him, everything is sublimatable, despite the appearance without substance of the artificial world around us: it suffices to exert strong actions on things, fantasies that inspire us all.

By changing the perception of time or explosion, something poetic, clear and understandable can radically be communicated at the time of the event. Everything happens for a very short moment, then everything disappears.
