Platform dedicated to networked actual art, Synesthésie decided to promote in an original way its online Centre of Virtual Art on the occasion of the release of a presentation DVD. A good opportunity to get interest in the citizen action engaged by this structure on the front of the "confrontation between contemporary art with the specificities of networks and digital".
Manières de Fluer Last autumn, the digital news tool arrived at the Biennale Art Grandeur Nature, organized by the Conseil general de Seine-Saint-Denis. Among the participating structures, the Dionysians of Synesthésie had chosen to orientate us in a seducing route called Manières de Fluer, where we could notably find the installations Interludes by Jérôme Joy in the Synesthésie space, created in 2006, Plaine – Sans Tête by Marie Preston at the Gérard Philippe theater, and above all the very impressive device of reactive luminous mobiles of urban moves Flux, Binary Waves, created by the Belgium group La[bau] and installed on the bank of the Saint-Denis canal (see MCD #53). Through its reflection on the interaction between the city, its urban development and its inevitable "technologization", this was as well the occasion to get more interested in the durable and original action of this platform, created in 1995 with the idea to become a real interface between artists, the audience and digital technologies. In this context, the Internet tool was of course the ideal media for a structure having been developed over the course of the extending over of internet…
Entertaining interaction First French art magazine available online (today 19 issues available), editor, pieces of art producer and organizer of events, Synesthésie multiplied its actions, pursuing an active broadcasting policy and audience awareness… In May 2009 Synesthésie participated to the Nuit des Musées, at the Cité Internationale de l’Immigration, offering a play interaction between card games and screenings on façade (Le Tapis Volant exhibition). Simultaneously, Anne-Marie Morice, director of Synesthésie, was invited to participate to the programming of the event La Force de L'Art at the Grand Palais. It was the occasion for a public inevitably wider to come and discover "virtual" pieces of art of Synesthésie’s site in a unique presentation, derivations of the ice floe on Work On Stage / Agence des Hypothèses, images generated live by Stéphane Trois Carrés and Bernard Malta¬verne, the symphony of planetary sounds in streaming by Locus Sonus, of the elec¬tronic body music of the device of Julien Clauss and Lynn Pook.
Rebel CAV Because Internet constitutes the heart of the Synesthésie nebula, they want them-selves to be an observation laboratory, of reflection and creation around the world technologization and changes that it makes in our relationship with the living being and the society via the put on line of textual and artistic contents that permanently enrich. Which proves the growing importance given to their resources pole on line, the CAV (Centre of Virtual Art), of which recent release of a presentation DVD constitutes the perfect business card. It is indeed the first time that a collection of artistic pieces of art on line, 45 in this case, is presented this way. Created in 2002, the CAV is a consultation of pieces of art space specifically created for Internet and allowing to have a coherent outline of the possibilities of artistic creation that it supposes. For an artist, integrating the CAV means responding to certain obligations like the formal constraint to use for every creation of virtual piece of art a specific software allowing to simplify the access to the content for all. The internet user is indeed in the heart of a system because, according to the leitmotiv of Synesthésie, those new practices, artistic, virtual, only exist when [the internet user] updates them by connecting to them.
Interactive navigations Several themes are specified this way on the DVD, allowing to introduce in a didactic and fun way works exhibited by artists on the CAV of Synesthésie: Naviga¬tions interactives, inducing interaction in real time between the user and the digital data put on line (Gestes by Djamel Kokene, Le temps d'une chanson by Régine Cirotteau); Propositions informelles inédites, inviting to discover instable forms and unique repre-sentation systems (Réserves et garnisons by Simon Boudvin, Signal/bruit by Jessica Label); Pratiques du détournement, giving priority to the intrusion modes of art in spaces not conceived for it (Neuromix by Jean-François Chermann, Synthomatic by Pascal Lièvre et Alexis Amen); e-art (bar codes games by Cécile Babiole); Flux du direct (streamings of Jérôme Joy); Nouvelles écritures documentaires (La ville en perspective by Serge Lhermitte); and finally musics of home page (Vincent Epplay, etc.). Interesting program made to attract curious people in the subliminal web of Synesthésie. LAURENT CATALA + INFO: Website: < www.synesthesie.com > CAV: <www.cav.synesthesie.com >
