Point de fuite

(Working title)

In this research and experimentation project, Alexis Langevin-Tétrault explores the concept of mechanical tension through a minimalist audiovisual performance. He develops a device made of ropes and sensors built from the architecture of the place, with which he interacts in order to generate and interpret sound synthesis, light effects, or video. Langevin-Tétrault thus continues the approach adopted in his previous projects Interférences and Hypercube on the corporality of the work, in a less spectacular and more purified optic, and by being more interested in the use of space, in the endangerment and in the perspective as driving principles.
