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
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
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
Maltaverne, the symphony of planetary sounds in streaming by Locus
Sonus, of the electronic body music of the device of Julien Clauss and
Because Internet constitutes the heart of the Synesthésie nebula, they
want themselves 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.
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: Navigations 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 representation 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.
