Effets de Soir


Series of videos depicting nocturnal floral formations in the gardens of Château de Chaumont-sur-Loire.

The faceted colors of the botanical compositions, saturated via artificial lighting, serve as a dataset to generate new computational paintings. Speculating on the traditions of landscape painting, the work explores a hybrid substance between the pictorial and the algorithmic.
