MIRAGE FESTIVAL – LYON | 2 > 6 MARCH 2016
ANAMORPHOSIS AT THE MUSÉE DES BEAUX-ARTS
— CONTEXT —
Founded in 2012, the Mirage Festival explores the links between art and innovation through a unique and hybrid programme of events. This five-day event festival brings together artists and creative minds who are actively reinventing artistic practices and modes of representation through technology. To address the theme of this fourth festival - “techno fictions” - Tetro+A produces an installation by Olivier Ratsi whose work approaches objective reality, time, space and matter as notions of intangible information.
— THE INSTALLATION —
"Pêle-Mêle" is a generative audio-visual installation created by Olivier Ratsi. It is composed of two modules at right angles, superimposed onto the existing environment. This installation attempts to simulate an immaterial space using anamorphosed projections made up of vertical and horizontal lines called “pelures” (peel or layers) to create an illusion of depth and dematerialisation. The viewer experiences this optical illusion by placing him or herself between the two modules.
