Lighting installation proposal - Neons 2012
In collaboration with the brilliant light designer Ingo Kalecinski, we submitted this proposal to the town of Geneva, Switzerland for their Neons competition. Even if the project has not accepted, Ingo and I are quite proud of the proposal we made under the constrains of the brief. The construct should be made with a set of neons tubes precisely placed on the roof of the building so that t.e words are formed in a specific part of the Plaine de Plainpalais square.

This piece reacts to passers by. It invites to come closer by its inviting light, which gets dimmer or brighter, and switch on and off according to movements around it.
Interactive installation - TouchInteractive 2011 at The Public - 2 February until 27 March 2011
My newest interactive work, 'My Hand In Your Hand', will be exhibited at The Public near Birmingham. Through a touch screen, I created a piece that allows users to go through the same process as I do when I paint. Following my rules and restrictions, I invite the audience to apply strokes on a blank canvas from which emerges traces and colours, to start a dialogue with themselves while being creative. I would have liked the audience to be able to save their creation but unfortunately the settings in the gallery don't allow internet access. I am currently working on an online version which enables just that.
