[ISEA2002] Artist Statement: Elsa Justel – Destellos

Artist Statement

“As in a reverie, the objects separate from their sense to become poetry”.

The idea of the project is to give life to the sparkle in different materials. Metal, glasses, ice, will travel in time and space by means of computer animation. There is also a play with sensations of fragility and transparence. The music plays the same notions by using recorded sounds of the same materials. In fact, the discours is lead by the music which guides the time developpment and underlines the sense of colour.
