11 May LCJ Capteurs chosen to transmit data from the wind both sides of the Atlantic.
Eotone is an installation that occupies the urban space while streaming a brand-new numerical symphony through wired objects.
Eotone is an interactive installation created by artists Herman Kolgen (QC) and David Letellier (FR).
Wind is a global meteorological phenomenon, one that is changing, intangible, but always felt. A source of both creation and destruction, it can take the form of a light breeze or a devastating hurricane. It scatters pollen, carries migratory birds, erodes mountains, moves deserts, and can destroy towns and forests in the blink of an eye. Currently a source of renewable energy, wind has always inspired people and made the first great ocean voyages possible. It is behind the discovery of unknown lands and the first human migrations. Always on the move, scoffing at borders, it is a natural and invisible tie between people.
Four sound and sculptural diffusers, containing elements of both the weather vane and the fog horn, make up this monumental installation that renders in movement and sound the direction and force of the wind blowing simultaneously on two continents: in Montreal and Quebec City on one side of the Atlantic, in Rennes and Nantes on the other.
The product of a remarkable international collaboration, EOTONE was launched against a backdrop of cooperation between Quebec and France, uniting the dynamic forces of the ACREQ, producer of the Elektra Festival and the International Digital Arts Biennial (Montreal), Recto-Verso, producer of the Le Mois Multi Festival (Quebec City), Stereolux, producer of the Festival Scopitone (Nantes)
and Electroni[k], producer of the Festival Maintenant (Rennes). Together, through EOTONE they present new conceptual, poetic and technological moorings in the virtual intersections of their respective territories.
