Artificiel | Condemned_Bulbes

Seconde Nature, Aix-en-Provence

Installation, Canada, 2003

Condemned_Bulbes is a visual and sound installation made up of incandescent light bulbs each of 1000W. By modulating the electrical current with a rheostat, Artificiel manages to make the lights’ filaments vibrate in an audible and controllable manner. In some ways the installation is a chorus of raw electricity which manifests itself in an acoustic manner. Each presentation varies to accentuate the surrounding architecture and sounds. Artificiel is a group of artists whose members are Alexandre Burton, Julien Roy and Jimmy Lakatos. (translation by Caroline Newman).
