March 2013 : Projection of 3 films on the facade of the Abbey of Pontlevoy during the international Theatre Festival.
”The Artistime exhibition provides a means to travel in time and space, mentally and philosophically.” Nils Aziosmanoff – Director of the Cube, Interactive Digital exhibition space, Paris.
Artisitime is an Art exhibition revolving around the notion of time, a collection of 100 films, lasting from 3 minutes to sometimes several hours, an invitation to reflect on the forever changing aspect of our environment and lives. Contrary to ordinary programming the films do not provide a storyline, the viewer is entranced by nature’s simple rhythm in time, an acquiescence to a peaceful place.
Through Guided imagery and accompanied by ambient sounds of nature, original musical compositions, or pure silence, spectators are enticed to dream and reflect on their own thoughts. The complete films, an expression of dynamic art, are an invitation to relax, to reflect, and discover contemporary living tableaux.
Projecting images improves the aesthetic environment, encourages time travel, reduces anxiety levels and…entertains. Considered as “windows of tranquility”, a respite from today’s stressful society and much more, since the content and scope is vast and versatile. The projected images can shape and inspire very diverses environments ie; provide large scale works of Art, build or forge an identity and occupy a myriad of spaces, private or public; ie: Galeries, Cultural Centers, Hospitals, Airports, Stages, Restaurants, Offices, Homes…. Dreamscenes can also contribute to the healing process; ie: hospitals, doctor’s offices, laboratories, as they create an environment conducive to relaxation and provides a positive distraction and a perspective on the world.
“The interaction between Images and sounds is one of the fascinating experience of this exhibition. An artistic important dimension. We were astounded to see the impact of the films on the visitors of the museum over time. People would come back several times, bring their families, and would stand sometimes more than 10 minutes in front of a sunrise, or one of Alban’s trasnformed dreamscene. “ Jean Paul Caley – Curator of the Museum of Vendome, France.
