Brèche is a dive through matter, light and memories. An organic unfolding of visual noises. Photogrammetric real life scans of different scales merge into abstract landscapes as we dive deeper into worlds where macro and micro become indistinguishable and where past moments interconnect.
Isometric tells the story of a slow descent into the abyss, a world made of permanent recombinations, like Julius Horsthuis' work on the infinity of fractal patterns. In this imaginary place, you travel in distortion, surrounded by unreadable patterns.
The visual journey of memory and recollection is possible in certain situations of hypnosis or dream. The work on this film is focused on the ability of immersive films to provide the sensation of dreamed images. How to visualize what is in the past or in the future? In other words, how to visualize what is absent from the present? The film is a journey, a mental itinerary that uses all the scales of the human gaze to image the memory, from the infinitely large to the smallest invisible.
Memory allows us to preserve and access past experiences. Now materialized by technology, this archiving potential is available to all. Mémoire Concrète transports us to a surreal future where the physical nature of this technology is now a symbolic remnant of the past.
Monera is a journey through the invisible universe that surrounds and inhabits us, the infinite reactions and proliferation that take place in the living matters in that exact moment. The work is an imaginary look at the sounds and images present in the microbiomes that are part of our existence. A delirious dive into organic shapes and ambient soundscapes.
Paradoxa is a dome experience about time traveling. Ontological paradoxes are situations that happen when traveling in time, causing contradictions. The predestination paradox occurs when a time traveler is trapped in a loop of events that predestines him to keep traveling in time..
Spatially separated but socially connected. This fulldome film takes us on a journey through fragments of life across the human and natural worlds highlighting our connections and the challenges of interrelated networks.
"People travel and dream. Through a jet-black past to a shining future of rapture. Passages of time and space that travel through eternity... SilkRoadia ". An image created by the word Silk Road. If you travel the long, long way, you may dream of this.
This short immersive film is an architectural and visual exploration of the Suprematism movement, and in particular “The Last Futuristic Exhibition of Painting 0,10”. This painting exhibition took place in Petrograd in 1915-1916, and featured works by Kazimir Malevich, a prominent figure in the abstract art movement, and associates. In the red corner of the room, traditional for the icon in an Orthodox house, was placed the "Black Square''. Suprematism was presented as a new direction in art.
