About

Romain Tardy (1984), born in Paris and studied art and design there, then moved to Brussels where he currently lives and works. He creates installations, direct movies, do art direction and design still and animated things.

Material

He made use of the plants of the botanical garden, on which he proyected the visuals.

Technology

The Ark is an ephemeral, site-specific audiovisual installation that took place in the ethnobotanical garden of Oaxaca, Mexico, during the first edition of Proyecta Oaxaca, a new festival dedicated to digital art.

Experience

In a poetic approach, The Ark gives voice to the plants which are turned into abstract characters: an unpredictable choir, and the beating heart of the garden.
Telling their story and revealing their imaginary nature, The Ark is a mise en abîme of the course. Loosely inspired by the myth of the Great flood, this audiovisual installation in three parts unfolds like a movie projected into space, where the spectator’s motion serves as a camera.
