[ISEA2014] Artist Statement: Francois Quevillon – POINTS DE REPÈRE

Artist Statement

A virtual camera gravitates around a 3D point cloud of Plateau Mont-Royal in Montreal which translates environmental conditions recorded over a one year period.

  • François Quévillon is an artist from Montreal, Canada. He develops an interdisciplinary practice through installation, video, photography, sound and digital technologies. His work explores phenomena of the world and perception by the implementation of processes sensitive to their fluctuations and to the interference of contextual elements. He examines the operational dimensions of images, sounds and other media through the elaboration of systems with unstable parameters, compressed or endlessly evolving spatio-temporal structures. Engaging both scientific observation and a contemplative state of mind, his pieces propose ambiguous experiences through which the ungraspable manifests itself. He investigates how technology affects or redefines human cognition, culture, the environment, our relationships to space, to time and to one another.                                  francois-quevillon.com/
