This work is inspired by both natural light phenomena, such as rainbows and iridescence, as well as panoramic architecture.
In a circular room, four screens display yellow, magenta and cyan bands, which move and diffuse their light. Their synthesis creates a white background on the walls. The spectators interact with the mixture by their simple presence, blocking the rays and thus creating colours around their shadows.
The shapes and colour combinations created by visitors' movements replace the usual architectural landmarks to create a virtual panoramic space.
It is influenced by reality and evolves between figuration and abstraction, summoning the sensitivity, inspiration and imagination of the spectators.
Thus, visitors can be active in front of the television set, which they can reappropriate through their movements, to create their own space.
Sound reinforces the effect of presence created by shadows, and allows each spectator to project themselves into space and at the same time into their imagination. Finally, the diversity of frequencies and sound layers echoes the multiplicity of light contrasts.
