Audiovisual Show Simultaneously Creates Artwork in Two Countries
An art installation/ science experiment bridges the gap between Montreal in Canada and Rennes in France
Audiences at the Society for Arts and Technology in Montreal, Canada and the Festival Maintenant in Rennes, France simultaneously participated in the creation of audiovisual work ‘Miscible‘ in real-time. This unprecedented experiment was held 5000 km and six hours apart, yet members of the public on both sides of the Atlantic were invited to attend the same show at the same time.
The audiovisual art installation bridged the gap between the two countries, enabling a bi-coastal exhibition to be held. It was created by Montréal-based new media artists Manuel Chantre and Mathieu Le Sourd (Maotik), who were aided by two chemistry researchers and an electronic engineer from the University of Rennes1, as well as a team of researchers at the Society for Arts and Technology.
