    Description

    « To light the sea », is not just about merely lighting it, it is making its great depths, currents, and infinite movement express themselves.
    Half-way across standing stones and UFOs, silhouettes of Cyclops, thrown scattered amongst the rocks.
    The blinding light of their giant eye pierces through the most obscure storms.
    During twenty one nights, the observer will see the encephalogram of the sea.

    This light expedition was carried out at the Pointe de la Torche in Brittany. The translation originates from the analysis of the sea movements. Tides, currents, wind, swell, waves captured by Ifremer and trans-coded in a bunker, determine the shifts and lights emanating from a group of a dozen projectors wrapped in composite material for their protection.
