Roger Vilder — Algorithme tactile
Past: October 8 → November 26, 2016
Roger Vilder’s concern is centered around concepts of time and motion throughout his works. For him, movement implies change, mutation from one state to another on the physical, metaphysical, psychological, individual or group and the evolution of forms in their proportions, colors and textures.
The first digital research of Roger Vilder date from 1971. They lead to animated sequences. In 1973, he made a series of computer drawings at the National Meteorological Center of Canada. From these drawings, several serial sculptures and graphic were carried out.
In 2005, an opportunity was offered to him to create some algorithms from his initial computer drawings. Faithful to his original concerns of time and motion applied in his kinetic works, he explores compositions of geometrical shapes, in black and white and in colors, on screen, in a continuous motion, random or repetitive.
In applying these algorithms on touch screen, it allows the viewer to intervene by enlarging, reducing, moving or fixing the image. In doing so, compositions appear on the screen, thereby synthesizing various researchs of many artists of the 20th century.
