MOVE AGAINST NOISE
During a residency in the MAC VAL, I was working on the territory of Val-de-Marne, with its teenage inhabitants, users or not of the museum. The goal was, to truly involve the young people in the construction development of the work.
A community was formed through meetings with young people from the Entente sportive de Vitry (boxing club), MAC ADO (series of meetings and workshops for volunteer teenagers), but also through through educators from the Val-de-Marne Children's Social Service and the ACER Orly Prevention Club and Le Plus petit cirque du monde in Bagneux.
The photographs, videos, the interactive installation and performances were showed in the MAC VAL museum, as well as in the Studio 13/16 of the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
MOVE AGAINST NOISE | BOXE | 2017
There is visible violence in each city, but there is also the potential of hidden aggression, loneliness, and stress related to the confined spaces within the city. In the video MOVE AGAINST NOISE, the artist films boxers from the suburb of Paris, who are practicing their sport in a public space, chosen by the boxers. The different “spots” are linked through a slow travelling. The control of violence is channeling, and made visible in the urban or semi-private space, where the tension of this repression has its origin.
The outside becomes an extension of the private inner conflict in a city, and vice-versa and points the question: What are we doing with the noise in us?

MOVE AGAINST NOISE | MODULOR | 2017
PROGRAMMATION MAX MSP | PIERRE GUFFLET
Depending on the architectural appearance, our movements change. You walk differently on a large city square than in a tiny tunnel of the subway, or in an open landscape.
MOVE AGAINST NOISE | MODULOR is an interactive device that questions the relationship between architecture and the movement of the body.
The installation consists of a camera that captures body movements and a video projection that changes in real time in relation to the movements detected.
The projected images are drawings of architectures. Depending on the movement of the participant, an architecture is built, undone, densifies or crumbles.
During the workshops we will create new images of architectures, enter them into the device and link them to effects that correspond to the feelings in the spaces drawn. We work on the images, but also on how they will be transformed in relation to a gesture.
