Artist and engineer Thomas Pachoud unveiled his first-ever work using the Hyperlight system—the focus of Pachoud’s artistic residency at the Atelier Arts-Sciences—at the Experimenta fair held at Maison MINATEC, to music created by composer David Guerra.
The 30-year-old Pachoud uses an innovative modular holography system he developed himself to transform light into living performances. He directs beams of light through a smoke-filled space, aligning them in parallel, making them converge, or moving them away from each other. The result is an unusual tableau of perspective in motion.
And the unveiling of Hyperlight at Experimenta gave just a hint of what Pachoud’s full-length performance—expected to be completed in 2016—will look like. So, stay tuned for more!
