Light traps for time

Bruno Caldas Vianna |

Last gathering on Monday December 9th 2013 Exchange between Avatar, La Bande Vidéo, LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE and MIS (São Paulo, Brazil).

LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE is happy to welcome Brazilian artist Bruno Caldas Vianna for a site-specific residency from October 15th to December 15th 2013, within the framework of the exchange program between Avatar, La Bande Vidéo and the Museum of Image and Sound (São Paulo, Brazil). During his production residency, the artist will be able to enjoy the technical expertise of the three Quebec centers, while the public will be able to follow the evolution of the work within LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE’s gallery space. The first opening of his residency will take place on Thursday November 7th 2013 at 5pm. Light traps for time is a work in progress that grasps outdistanced technological tools (turntable, analog video cameras, pinhole cameras, etc.) in order to divert and reclaim them, while generating new hybrid instruments. The residency work of the Brazilian artist consists of the conception of technological objects aiming to capture and manipulate images. An analog pinhole that traps rays of light ; another electronic pinhole made of photoresistance sensors that generate analog delays ; a SSTV camera that transposes captured images into precise audio compositions ; and a Geneva stop that transforms a circular movement into still images – this is part of the machines used by Bruno Caldas Vianna in his pursuit of instants to capture. Comparing himself to a hunter of luminous pulses who is on the lookout for his evanescent prey, the artist observes that, in the end, there are merely fragments of temporality emerging.
