Il video documenta la performance audio-visiva Entropia del compositore e sound artist Fraction, esplorazione estetica – attraverso suono, architettura, design e visual – del sistema entropico alla base di qualsiasi processo di trasformazione. Entropia è pensata come un oggetto architettonico audio-reattivo, omaggio all’architetto Richard Bukminster Fuller autore del design geodetico.
Entropia, Fraction, video made on the first Entropia iteration, presented at SAT Montreal, for IX Symposium, giugno 2015, Entropia is a co-production with SAT and benefited from the Residency program in research and creation of the Society for Art and Technology.
The project started in 2014, when sound Artist Fraction, as laureat of Institut Français for France/Quebec digital field program, was designing a new piece in which on the technical aspect, he would redefine sound spatialization potentiality for immersive electronic music and expand his capacity to manipulate sound material in real time. Few months later, he’s joined by Louis Philippe St-Arnault to design a geodesic led filled structure as the complementary lightning system for the piece. Later, they teamed up with Nature Graphique and Creation Ex Nihilo to create the visual content for pixel mapping, and generative visuels projection
Literally, Entropia comes from greek etymology ἐντροπία which means « transformation». It characterizes the degree of disorganization or lack of a information on a system.
More precisely, in thermodynamics, while the first principle is a principle of conservation of energy, the second principle, is the principle of evolution. It states that any real transformation occurs with inevitable increase in global disorder; disorder measured by entropy. This law involves several questionings for our own civilisation progress and our duty to necessarily think of a sustainable development.
ENTROPIA is also thought as an architectural audio reactive object, paying tribute to the ideas of Richard Buckmeister Fuller, architect and theorist of geodesic design. For Fuller, the geodesic dome was architect’s response to questions based on our duty to implement sustainable development in a finite world.
Playing on the symbol of the dome, the work wants to offer a wide aesthetic response and provide an opportunity for the viewer to take up these issues through a multi-modal experience (sound, architecture, design, visual)
