Padièscapes

I wanted to extend the concept of Down to Earth to one specific aspect: Water. My ambition for the series was to break new ground and challenge my secure way of producing images.

Technology has always seduced me, but this is never one of my strong points.

But I decided the perfect vehicle would be an AR piece that could be distributed over the internet, Downloaded and used wherever to bring attention to water necessity.

I envisaged TheWaterCube (a plexiglass cube of water), which would be used as the base for the project.

Producing an AR piece was beyond my capabilities. I contracted an outside individual to design this dream. Again, it’s not so easy. After a year of various attempts with a mildly successful result, we launched the app.

I was left with many cubes I had experimented with, so I decided to see what I could produce with them alone. Filled with water and placed in front of flowers, I play with colours that the flowers inspire. I was playing like a child with a palate of colours.

Padièscapes evolved.

I then decided to move back to technology. Holograms have held my interest for many years, and this may be more feasible. But the absolute mathematical need to create holograms stumped me again. Why do I keep being seduced by technology?

But as I continued to play with colours, my relationship with the flowers changed. I lost the cube but retained the plexiglass surface; I played with colours that the flowers inspired. I’m a child playing.  Padièscapes evolved. The images appear as authentic three-dimensional pictographs, triumphant stills, which allow me to fulfil a challenge between technology and a return to the photography manual. I play with colour, water and light. It will enable us to travel from the smallest detail of the flower to a more distant and intangible dimension. I continue to challenge my vision and storytelling.

The objective became an experience created by manipulating the context of the environment rather than remaining within the confines of the original, opening the door to another vision of colour and what it means in art and nature.

The flowers planted at Padiès create environments for me to use in the Padièscapes concept. It is a dialogue with nature and history.
