Artist and researcher, Louis-Philippe Rondeau is a professor at École des arts numériques, de l’animation et du design (NAD). His research focuses on the issues of post-photography. Like virtual mirrors, his interactive installations show the body in a different light. Diverting the physiognomy of the interactor through marginal devices, they question the relationship of the spectator to the work and incite us to rethink the conventions of image-based mediatization, particularly its spatiotemporal articulation. His applied practice stems from his years of working in the field of digital visual effects.
Louis-Philippe Rondeau CA/QC — Liminal
Liminal is an interactive installation that renders the inexorable passage of time as images. It seeks to reify the boundary between the present and the past. A luminous arch in a dark space stands as the time portal. When we cross this demarcation line, our reflection projected on the wall is deployed through time thanks to the slit-scan technique. Like a visual metaphor, our image is lost in the ethereal whiteness of oblivion.
