Galerie B-312 is pleased to present an installation by Rosalie D. Gagné, in its small room. The genesis of this work is a set of five translucent objects that the artist had the opportunity to create using glassblowers while on a residency in Mexico. These spheres with small openings are reminiscent of cellular imaging.-Suspended in the exhibition space, they are deployed through long transparent tubes connected to the five "cores" of glass. Each object is equipped with light-emitting diodes and a fan, all connected to a set of sensors and programmable electronic devices. According to the information collected, a rustling and variation in the luminous flux is perceived.Réseau the interest that the artist has in various disciplines including reactive architecture and biology. At the same time, Rosalie D. Gagné echoes biomimicry, an approach to technological development that draws on living things and their ecosystems.-Breaking the boundaries between artificial and living, interactivity helps develop the network experience in time. The action / reaction exchanges between the spectator and the installation modulate the perception of the work and the space it occupies. To discover how an amalgam of glass and electronics manages to come to life through an intriguing mechanism, a visit to the gallery is a must.
