MIND ART®: INTERACTIVE ART PROJECT

How do I involve an art lover — “ the one who looks” — in my own creation?

Interactivity in Art is a question that has always fascinated me.


In 2006-08, I developed MIND ART, an innovative interactive art concept which allowed visitors in my exhibitions to modify all the colors of my paintings, instantly thanks to a digital interface.


Through this invitation, I associated the viewer with the development of the work: my painting being re-interpreted by the latter was then part of a collective and evolving art gallery.


By offering to re-appropriate one of my creations, the art lover ended up with a unique and personal work of which he could claim to be the co-author.

Thus the final final work was born:

  • of my traditional work as a painter in the workshop

  • of my digital work as a multimedia artist

  • of the creative commitment of the amateur


This made it a resolutely contemporary creation due to its interactive nature, correlated with the mix of techniques used (traditional and digital).


MIND ART was developed in two forms: LIVE and WEB


MIND ART “LIVE” was accessible via a mobile interface (wii controller type) and offered for public experimentation during a personal exhibition.

 

THE DEVICE

1. GYBE SET IS ONE OF MY CANVASES.

Format: 114 x 146 cm | Pigments and acrylic on canvas mounted on frame

 

2. GYBE SET IS PRESENTED DURING AN INDIVIDUAL EXHIBITION.


The visitor chooses the painting with which he wants to interact.

3. THE CANVAS IS PROJECTED INTO THE HEART OF THE DIGITAL SPACE (here GYBE SET ).


The visitor reinterprets it LIVE using the MIND ART digital interface .









 

A MIND ART WEB version of the proposal existed in the form of a dedicated site or on touch screens presented to the public during events.


 

More than ever, I remain touched by this need to bring the art lover into the artist's creative space, at least mine. I'm talking about the intimate "cloud", my vision board... and not necessarily the physical space that is the workshop.


From artist to art lover, from Being to Being, interactivity always operates.

MIND ART proposed a reinterpretation subsequent to the completion of the painting. The co-creative process to which I now refer is synchronous with production — from elaboration to work in the material; it is also decisive during the preparatory work. Its nature is no longer digital but verbal, friendly, energetic like a “think & love tank”.


Today, I deeply enjoy working for and with sponsors: entrepreneurs, designers, institutional partners and individuals trust me. Their orders generally concern large-format canvases, or even monumental diptychs or triptychs.
