Triennal Art Public Liege
WIDESCAN takes the form of a wall’s section, a piece of facade. It incorporates a screen that broadcasts a diaporama of images of Liège piloted by a movement sensor which is able to detect a human presence in the sculpture's environement but also the direction of its movement. The closer you get to the screen, the slower the scrolling of the images is, until they become completely stopped. “Liège is a city that inspires me. I've been taking pictures of her for over 5 years now. Its history, its heritage, its textures are all parameters that give it a unique atmosphere. A multitude of often innocuous details define its DNA. The installation for Art Public Liège highlights them. It questions our environment, its peculiarities, its tendency to disorder and reorganization. I also thought about the meaning of a presence detector diverted from its use as a surveillance device or a screen positioned in public space when it is not broadcasting advertising or practical information.
