INCESSAMMENT

INSTALLATION and PERFORMANCE — 2004

  • "Incessamment" @ Artco - Lima, 2005

Incessamment is a sound and video installation and performance about time and space representation.

Far from the globalized, standardized cities as shown by web cams or 24 hour info-TV channels, I propose a singular, personal, peculiar vision of urban landscape with surround sound and fast motion, where the movement of cars, people, cranes and boats generates visual rhythms and melodies.

For Incessamment, I collected images and sound samples captured in various cities. I’m not looking for exotic or famous spots. On the contrary, i’m looking for daily, slightly odd situations. For example : staccato comings and goings in front of the Jacques Cartier Bridge in Montreal, smoke arabesques of a factory in Brooklyn, a hyperactive krane in Montmartre, a storm on a business center, swimmers shouting and playing in the tides of a resort…

These samples form the raw database that I use for the installation and performance.
