Oscillations 2020, Miguel Chevalier
Generative and interactive virtual-reality installation
Music: Michel Redolfi
Software: Cyrille Henry

Oscilliations is a new generative virtual-reality installation that is interactive with music by Michel Redolfi. This creation allows a 3D graphic visualization of the music by Michel Redolfi.

Thanks to generative software, a waveform is generated in real time according to the frequencies and amplitudes of the music. These spectrums of the different sounds of music generate imaginary landscapes to infinity. These landscapes, which pass before our eyes, present an infinite number of variations: solid or wireframe, steep or flat, in black & white, or in color. Image and music respond to each other in a fusion of an emotional nature that participates in a true synesthesia.

Complex Meshes 2020, Miguel Chevalier
Generative and interactive virtual-reality installation
Software: Cyrille Henry

Complex Meshes is a projection that plunge visitors in a universe of networks. A mesh is a three-dimensional object consisting of vertices, edges and faces which form polygons, used in 3D modeling or architecture. For this piece, the use of numerous wireframe meshes becomes an aesthetic in itself. Different colored weaving patterns composed of polygons overlap, evolve and transform slowly in real time. This huge virtual light curtain twists, moves and resizes to create diverse and complex shapes. This work is interactive. When the viewer moves in the space, the networks are disrupted.

Within this vital flow, everything floats about, branches out, always turning into something else through the interweaving of multiple lines of colored light, layered networks, and varied pathways. Elements are attracted and repelled by one another, creating a breathing-like rhythm of dilation and contraction.

Miguel Chevalier re-approaches notions of flux and networks, which are inherently difficult to perceive, yet appear here with real substance. Light, movement and energy represent some of the new poetics of matter which emerge from the continuation of kinetic art.

This dynamic work reflects with poetry, flux of data and information, exchanged in real time in our world today, which weave throughout our environment and circulate continuously at an ever-increasing speed.
