Unvinvisible LAB

A creation In continuity of a former project, it highlights the action of sound on  matter. This installation presents itself as an experimental research on the management of electrical signals. Composed of about fifteen analogical devices, it tries to produce optical and sound phenomena in immersive space that is concerned with random behaviors of electricity. The devices interact, one with the others due  to a vast network of cables and components that are sensitive to environmental variations. These devices are assimilated to a practicable machine whose circuits make it possible to grasp its fragility/brittleness by showing the elusive oscillations of a signal made accessible to our senses by luminous, vibratory and mechanical processes.

Production Transcultures as part of the Digital and Sound Emergencies program with Arts2 partnership .

Alexis Choplain

Alexis Choplain (Brussels), who is involved in experimental approaches using exclusively analog technologies, debuts his production with an interest in vibratory phenomena that combine mechanics, sound and light. Working to hybridize the arts and sciences, he diverts and appropriates scientific vocabularies and tries to extract a plastic potential. He focuses his current research on the design of his own electrical devices in order to understand the internal functioning of the machine: this process of deepening opens the way to more and more intimate projects with the machine, leading him to the interest of a more fundamental field, electricity, and immaterial energy. The only limits of usage, of which, are designated by our imagination.
