Les premiers essais d’une nouvelle idée : un carnet de voyage animé. Scènes de rues observées à Yogyakarta, Indonésie.

 

First 3 attempt to build an animated travel book. Sketchy, messy, and experimental. Street scenes observed in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Here are some new drawings I just made. I am currently researching a new way to make images out of ex-industrial/falling appart areas.
This neighbourhood is Bacalan, Bordeaux

Voilà quelques nouveaux dessins. Je suis actuellement à la recherche d’un nouveau moyen d’exploiter ces images d’ex-zones industrielles (ou à l’abandon)
Ici, le quartier de Bacalan, Bordeaux

Just wanted to make portraits…

Something between an ode to his wrinkles and terrified exploration of that face I used to know.

Je voulais juste faire des portraits. Quelque chose entre un ode à ses rides et l’exploration terrifiée d’un visage que j’avais l’habitude de connaitre. (Quelle impudeur…)

Animation, yeah : agaaain. (Now that I figured out how to post videos, nobody will stop me)

This animation is a test for a performance project with Claire Danvy.

So, this is the story of two girls that love drawing on themselves, and that want to make a performance together. Concretly, Claire and I are preparing a video-concert derivated from a performance we made 2 weeks ago in Airan.

She plays cello, and we both sing. As usual in my « anti-spectacles », the basic elements are simple, but our energy bring them to a contemplative dimension.

So far the performance works pretty well by its own, but as we are both interrested by video, we are currently thinking of interacting with images during our improvisation.

Micro-bidouillages

Here is a video I made last year, after monthes of stop motion experimentations.

Consider it as abstract landscapes, or as matter coming to life.

It stills has no definitive name (as I can’t choose between « micro-paysages » or « affrontement ») but it also can be seen on Megavideo (better quality)  there : http://www.megavideo.com/?v=DZQDQXHF

Concepted as a dyptich,  the two screens was forming an angle in order to surround the viewer.

What was first some experiments  on how  different everyday-materials could be animated, started fascinating me for it’s unexpected plastic quality. I guess my first crush, the Arte Povera’s sculptures, playing on the tension between materials in a symbolic and a sensitive way really influenced me.

The sountrack is also mine. Translating the movement created by the animation into sound, braught a third « screen ». I consider these 3 elements as independent and complementary.
