RÉSONANCES | Louis-Philippe Rondeau in collaboration with Elektra
A metaphor for the passage of time.
RÉSONANCES is an interactive installation that embodies the inexorable passage of time. It seeks to reify the limit between present and past.
An arch of light appears in the darkness: it is a temporal portal. When we cross this threshold, our reflection projected on the adjacent wall seems deployed in time thanks to the slit-scan technique. In this visual metaphor – the past constantly taking over the present – we see our image fading inexorably into the oblivion of white light. In a sense, the work emphasizes that all light is the manifestation of events that have already occurred – the twinkle we see in the night sky is but a bygone snapshot of the stars.
