Artists Statement 

Invited in 2014 in the Meetings Arts-sciences of St Priest,Guillaume Marmin and Philippe Gordiani collaborated with the Research center in Astrophysics of Lyon in the production of Timée, review of Platon’s eponym work. Between mathematical and metaphysical, the philosopher describes “Timée” as the solar system where the distances between planets amount to harmonious musical intervals. The universe would be ordered such a completed baptized partition Music of Spheres. Based on exchanges and reflections around this theme, the installation delivers a subjective and poetic interpretation of the origins of astrophysics.
