The French artist Bertrand Lanthiez recently shared video from his “Sound of Threads” exhibition, a spellbinding project he showed first in Reykjavik in June of this year. The show consisted of two parts. The first—and the one represented in the video above—consisted of four wooden stands, with white strands of Icelandic wool stretched between them. He then projected light onto the threads in synchronicity with a piece of music he composed. Check out just how perfectly executed this went above, including how he dismantled the piece using a flamethrower.
The second part of Lanthiez’s installation was a very small room, wired to react to its entrants. Wires hung from the ceiling, the entire floor was a giant, triggered circuit (if one chose to go barefoot). Light and sound generated from viewers reacting with the different triggers, creating a collaborative, immersive instrument. Check out footage of this piece below:
Lanthiez explains the link between the two parts of the exhibition
The two installations were visually and in their structures arranged quite differently. The main piece was black and white, with really thin ray of light choreographed on a soundtrack, the other was an instrument where the visitors made their own piece of sound, and was really colored on this large pieces of fabrics. But this two pieces were also tightly connected by using the same voices and sounds, and they both wanted to show this link between our different senses.
