If we live in a dematerialized world, then objects are only a door that opens towards the heterotopia of art. The work is oriented towards the direction of this assumption, exploring the «infra-thin» that separates the universes. This installation treats colour as the holographic reflection of matter: the projected light on the coloured threads is used in order to modify our perception of them: The wires appear and disappear depending on the lighting which is generated by a computer program. Matter and light play together, their delicate game contrasts with the darkness of the room and reveals a fine neural or astrophysical network. The ripple is ephemeral but hypnotic, like electric waves that disturb our senses of dimensions. «Rémanences» is a poetic and optical installation made of wire and light, it is from its apparent simplicity that it draws all its marvelous.
