[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Nicolas Reeves — Morphologies Surrationnelles

Artist Statement

The title of this work refers to formal explorations produced by algorithmic techniques, the neuron network, cellular automata and lambda calculus. Two of these are presented in books standing on lecterns. Each book suggests different views and presents the development steps of a Morphology in a simple (clear line) graphic mode, as precise as an illumination. Speakers broadcast a sound sequence based on the same digital gene as that of the Morphology. An image of the same model is projected on onea third lectern stelas. On its back, graphics from the same gene are shown in geometric form.

  • Nicolas Reeves (Canada), architect, received a Bachelor’s degree in physics from the University de Montreal and a Master’s degree in architecture from MIT (Cambridge). Since 1989, he lectures in the Design Department of University du Quebec a Montreal.
