Hugo Verlinde: Alcyone
Verlinde Hugo. Digital artist, combining sculpture and generative imaging.
- Quoted by Aziozmanoff 2015.
- Lotus I (2013) Presentation at Galerie Charlot to Paris ACM Siggraph and Algorists members. A Flower in the Generative Spring. (2013).
- His work combined with a Schoeffer's sculpture (2012). Our note.

He was destined to an engineer's career, but Verlinde choses cinema at college age, entering Louis Lumière School rather than a traditional "grande école". But he embarks from start in this career with a passion similar to the algorist's one : the magics of forms generated by algorithms or equations. He had felt that as soon as his 16h year, due a Casio FX7000G, one of the first programmable graphic pocket computer. For generating images, he chooses four curves (said "transcendent" by Descartes) : sine, cosine, exponential, logorithm. These will feed his first basic animated entities : The Dervishes. He constraints himself to his four functions plus a saturation parameter. He develops empirically, on his feelings: "I shall ticke the equation a some place or other, and I validate visually". Looking for a wider space, beyond synthetic image, he modulates it and gets its substance by projecting them on performers bodies, without crossing the borders or cinema : Aldébaran (2001), Géminga (2003), Bételgeuse (2004).
On this first phase nothing is better than in interview "Un cinéaste à la croiseée des pratiques", by Raphaël Bassan on June 2005. All the artists of this period (notably like those who testify in the seminaries "Histoire de l'image de synthèse française" set by Pierre Hénon for Paris ACM Siggraph, he never fails to remind the weight of these times processes : four minute for an image, ence seven work days for three minutes of film.
He makes a first break on 2005, with video installations, so breaking his relation with the cinematographic surface... and the world of cinema says him, regretfully : "I can no longer write about you". But, beyond its artistical charm, this jump into a new space enters him into a more dynamic economic model than synthetic cinema : the world of contemporary art. Its also another social environment : the Beaux Arts and their specific ways of living. A difficult world, but he is rapidely appreciated. From the renting of his films for each projection, he starts the selling of his installations. Then he becomes able to earn his living with an art that, still being digital, abides also to the "sculpture" category : : Iris (2005), Altaïr (2007), Univers-îles (2009), Constellations (2010).
That is no enough for him. He meets Florent
Aziozmanoff, at Cube, and
invests in real time installations :
Boréal (2010), Vide (2010),
Verticales (2011), Carré Magique
(2011), Stratosphère (2012). Indeed, the
power af new processors, and a reshuffle of his programming
by Didier Bouchon (artistic director of Cube) gives him
access to real time. And this time, the break is triple :
- technical : with real time, he passes the "sound barrier" of synthesis images generation,
- intellectual : generative art is a vast environment (see the dedicated site opened in diccan);
- social : becoming a digital artist properly speaking, he passes the customary usual border of contemporary art. He enters a new universe, not an easy one for that, since the market opens slowly. But this biotope fills his holes, notably with the opening of dedicate galleries (Numeris Causa, which wont survive, then Galerie Charlot, later Lélia Mordoch and Denise René), and some critics who try to acquire the necessary competence.
Fortunately, his stay in the world of art widens his commercial talent and his network (private collectors, public markets). He succeeds there all the better that some of his works can be considered sculptures, even if their soul (a term he loves) lies in generative computing.
La Croix, at Saint-Merry. " The sky is not above nor below, on left nor on right, it is exactly in the center of the chest by a man who believes. "(Salvador Dali, cited by the Voir et Dire website.
His practice, in the 2012, makes great use of enameled steel, gathered in more or less large number, placed at different depths. Their slighthly ochered white color and their structure shines and slitghtly undulates, highlights the projected images, be they set of rectangles or curves. The material is robust. It may be used for pieces small enough to be hung in a gallery or larger, as in the Cross exposed on the ground of Saint-Merri church in Paris (end of 2012). Of course, the woks comes to life only with a projector placed a some distance (generally, hung to the ceiling) and is dark enough space.
Verlinde will not stop there. He has perceived the rich potentialities of LED Art, and works notably on a great set fot the Erevan town (capital of Armenia). Some ten meters high, it would top the Opera house, which closes the perspective of the tows main street. So, it would draw a livint link between the concret life of the avenue, the sophisticated architecture of its façade and, nearly at infinite on the background, the Ararat mountain, a mystical place considered as the landing spot of Noah's ark. So it would take perfectly its place in the trajectory of that artist who has always felt, under algorithhms and equations, the call of transcendence. As he says himslelf: "Since ever our images bear space ; a curve, sensual, geometric space, fleshy and live vibrating". I have for ambition to give flesh to our new relation to space, using the specific resources of digital. I shall relate body do space, and make infinite intimate". (L'infini intime, Fragments, 2003-2012).

Jules Verne: 3D video in Le château des Carpathes.
Verne Jules 1828-1905.
- One could say : "He had foreseen everything... and even more". He is mainly famed for the submarine in Vingt mille lieues sous les mers, or the helicopter in Robur le Conquérant. But he did not neglect information and communication technologies.
< Le château des Carpathes, presents an equivalent of the present video recorder, in a 3D version
< Paris au XXe siècle, an early work, unpublished until 1994 (Hachette), with rather delirious views about accounting machines.
But his views on new media are mostly developed in a novel The Day of an American Journalist in 2889, published in the American magazine 1889. Multimedia, worlwide (and interplenatary) communication by optical ways, integrated managemnet information systems, domotics... this dense and short (35 000 signs) novel merits to be read. Find here online its integral text, plus the illustrations of the French version.
