Cosmogonie – video installation using motion capture (2020)

Gilles Jobin


Cosmogonie is a video installation made of 4 projection screens, in which virtual dancers, previously recorded in real time using motion capture technology, constitute the imaginary cosmogony of a virtual world in suspension. In a sidereal space or within a virtual forest, the moving bodies of the dancers break free from the laws of physics. Through the real movement of their virtual avatars, they offer a unique contemplative experience.
