16 May 2019

Pixel Noir Lumière is an installation by the French artist Miguel Chevalier that pays tribute to the artist and painter Pierre Soulages.

Pixel Noir Lumière is the name of Miguel Chevalier‘s latest installation on display until 26 May 2019 at the Soulages Museum in the French town of Rodez. The work pays tribute to the artist and painter Pierre Soulages, whose centenary will be commemorated on 24 December 2019, and presents two generative and interactive digital installations: “Pixel liquides and “L’origine du monde”, both exploring the use of light in the visual arts.

The interactive installation Pixel liquides is projected onto a wall, which becomes the canvas for moving digital brushstrokes, creating large abstract paintings in real time. The movements of the visitors who walk through the exhibition space become unknowingly authors of the work, since their movements are visually reflected on the virtual canvas.

L’origine du monde is the second interactive installation on display and is inspired by biology, microorganisms and cellular automata. The installation presents several virtual black and white paintings composed of universes of cells that move as viewers cross the floor.
