FICTION 2 or a gentle evocation of radioactive particles.

Fiction 2. 2011. 3D Image in 96 cm x 64 cm format.

Fiction 2 at my personnal exhibition at Le Cube (2013).


This series follows “Fiction 1” a work inspired by the events that took place in Japan, March 2011.   We are in this series after the tsunami.

A strange softness emerges from these images. 
First the calm water, a simple reflective surface which is almost flat. Next, the terror associated with the atomic disaster is partially diminished by the visualization of the nuclear particles. Indeed, the fear of radioactivity is in part due to its frightening invisibility. It is a contamination that cannot be seen so it cannot be fought against. Computer graphic images are able to reveal the unseen, as well as ease the anxiety of the “invisible” or according to our perception make the danger that we often deny, real,  because it colorless, odorless and intangible.

The hypnotic image becomes almost Zen-like. Soothed by the soft lapping of the water and pacified by the slow ascending movement of particles we almost fall asleep.  There.

Making of. 3D particles with turbulence.

This image is a research, a step to my “Fiction 2” series. My idea at that time was to symbolize the nuclear disaster with Japanese toys (like Godzilla).
One could be surprised that this step is more complex that the final result. This approach is to the heart of my work, I try as much as possible to simplify to get the most primitive and pure form. That is in my opinion how 3D computer graphics expresses fully their specificities and becomes a subject of the piece.
