In “Lambeaux”, the television stream is taken as raw material, a material lacerated by a process of motion capture which extract in real time all the pixel that have changed during the broadcast. Those fragments are captured and recast, in a spatial-temporal way, on a twenty-four images loop.

The accumulation process takes place within the contours of past images and the way pixels are then reorganized in real time produces a jagged image with unreal effects – a ghostly memory of the video flux, a colorful palimpsest where fragments of motion and time coexist.



A scenario is constructed generally as a binary unfolding, where often action, and passion alternate, to create suspense, dramatic tension. The spectators keep watching a movie because of the simple fact that they want to know what going to happen next in the scenario. „Spoiler“, this word means the fact to told to a spectator who is watching a film, a description of a narrative that relates plot elements not revealed early in the narrative itself, and by doing so ruining the suspense, the dramatic tension of the movie. The spectator are mostly captivated by a film because they want to know what gonna happen next.

In this installation a movie is broadcast on a screen set up in a room. When people enter the room their silhouette are, in real time encrusted on the movie. Inside their silhouette the same film and soundtrack is broadcast but ten minutes later. The presence of a spectator reveal a part of what happen next during the next scene in the scenario, producing a narrative shortcut, creating a coexistence of two or more temporality in the same movie. There is also a spatial interaction, to reveal a part of the movie, the spectator have to move around, because it is only his (silhouette) shape that reveal a spatial part of the movie.


Nicolas Boillot is an visual artist working with new media.

He creates artworks that, through arrangement, accumulation, new configuration, aim to generate possible interpretations, making hidden sides evident, creating new ways to read or interpret information flows. He gained a Master Degree in New media Arts from the University of Poitiers/La Rochelle – Art School of Poitiers / Angoulême, France in 2004 and prior to this a National Superior Art School Diploma from the Art School of Aix en Provence, France in 2003.
