Philippe Gourdon uses light like brushes, but where a canvas is motionless, his compositions move, transform and superimpose themselves, the spectator becomes an actor by inventing improbable stories in front of these constantly renewed animations. At most, three colors that intermingle, previously chosen among the hypnagogic rays to make the contemplation more fluid.
The search for the "right" light is an incessant quest for Philippe Gourdon as well through his lighting research, video or pictures. He takes us into his multifaceted universe as an infinite journey to the land of reflections, contrast and wonder.
His latest work is based on the superimposition of thin lines of light that are composed in a choreography of animated shades, with hypnotic effects. The animations are driven by digital algorithms that transform light into colored geometric particles that blur the boundaries between reality and imagination.
This work is based solely on a line of digital LEDs, animated by a specific computer program to mix light and matter.
The result of these multiple light effects, explores the addictive possibilities of animated light and suggests visions between the delirium of Time Square's scrolling advertisements, the colorful explosion of Shibuya, and the soothing power of light therapy.
