Release & FLUX

Court-métrage + installation vidéo



In September 2021, I had the chance to be invited as artist in residence on the Coriolis II research vessel to accompany the TReX (Tracer experiment release) mission. On this occasion, a multidisciplinary team of scientists carried out the dumping and monitoring of a dye in the St.Lawrence River in order to model its dispersion: in the event of pollution by a toxic liquid, it will be possible to better plan the necessary actions.


The images of scientists filmed by drone or amphibious camera, which I was able to collect during this mission, are striking: they inevitably recall the dramatic scenes seen many times on television of environmental disasters caused by humans. With this notable difference that they invert the paradigm here: the dye used is not toxic, and its pouring is done with a benevolent intention towards nature.


The artistic project consists of the realization of an immersive video installation for two screens (planned for winter 2022), with the images of the scientists which will be accompanied by a soundtrack produced with recordings taken from the Coriolis II as well as original music (the one accompanying this foretaste was recorded on a beautiful starry night on the deck crew's radio).



Drone pilot: Elie Dumas-Lefebvre. Underwater images: Shumin Li. Sounds: Baptiste Grison.

Two distinct artistic projects come from the images collected during the mission:


RELEASE is a 10-minute experimental documentary short film intended for international distribution in festivals (Distribution Paraloeil). He is accompanied by a Schumann leader interpreted by Éthel Guéret and Maurice Laforest. 

Its "World Premiere" took place in October 2022 at the Imagine science festival (New York).

You cancheck the film file here, including technical information, credits, trailer, poster and more. The film is distributed by Paraloeil.

FLUX is a more abstract immersive video installation, without beginning or end (loop), adaptable for one or two screens. This project is intended for projection rooms in museums and art galleries. It is accompanied by an original soundtrack by Robin Servant.

FLUX est une installation vidéo immersive plus abstraite, sans début ni fin (en boucle), adaptable pour un ou deux écrans. Ce projet est quant à lui destiné aux salles de projection des musées et des galeries d'art. Il est accompagné d'une bande sonore originale de Robin Servant.
