Visual System is an art and design collective whose works revolve around the medium of light. Their multi-faceted team of programmers, sound artists, architects, etc., usually combines all their talents to completely transform a natural setting into an immersive and glowing futuristic environment. This experimental way to do is being part of the new interactive technologies and of the future LED using, from human scale to urban one.Read More
All members of Visual System are pure colour artists. And it is through the light that they develop limitless stories. Positioned at the frontiers of art and design, they also draw their creative references from both cinema and architecture. Geometry forms the heart of their languages extracted in their installations from the invisible. In the devices they create, colours blend and combine in endless transitions, defining and reproducing new patterns within space and time. The works flow vibrantly like the Internet, whose knowable exchanging variability influences our variability of outlines and shapes as they communicate with each other.
Visual System creates an immersive, hypnotic experience that produces a feeling of stretched time. It places the viewer both in and distanced from fragments of micro- or macrocosms with sprawling extensions, purely determined by an art of movement. And we shall not forget the sound component of Visual System's practice; sounds work in tandem with lights, sharing with those abstract images the temporality of a transient extreme. Immersive sound illuminates the nuanced relationship of the viewer with the artworks, a relationship characterised by immediacy that transcends the cognitive aspect. This relationship is perfectly suitable for the experiments of Visual System's artists-engineers.
