A dark canvas with a blue-green circle, the installation »Omni-Vermille, by Anne-Sarah Le Meur. Installation with 3D real-time images and sound
What is the relationship between painting and digital artworks?
Since the 1990s, Anne-Sarah Le Meur (*1968, France) has explored that connection. The installation »Omni-Vermille« (2020), which is her second work to be shown at the ZKM Karlsruhe. ( the first was the interactive 360° panorama installation »Beyond-Round« in 2011 ) is also based on computer-generated real-time 3D images. The programmed code allows light spots to oscillate against a dark background. The colors sometimes move dynamically, sometimes calmly across the projection surface; sometimes they evoke plasticity, sometimes depth. This continuous metamorphosis endows the contents of the images with a sensual, even lively quality. The metamorphosis designed by algorithms opens up a new time-based morphology of colors and forms for painting.
The play of colors is accompanied by a stereophonic sound composition by Jean-Jacques Birgé: (*1952, France). The sounds follow the shapes of the colors, only to stand out again the next moment: the combination of sound and image results entirely from the laws of random simultaneity.
