À l’∞ is an audio-visual installation comprised of a custom fabricated curved LED screen. By blinking, the light pixels reveal a minimalistic human body at scale that runs constantly,embodying in its movement a crescendo of emotions from vulnerability to power. In practice, the human form moves on the spot, but the rotating movement of the screen, activated by a motor gives the impression that the form runs around in real space. A soundtrack accompanies the sequence of images and the emotions which are represented. The sound moves in the space following the course of the screen. When looking at the installation, one is not able to see all images at the same time, unless by moving constantly and following the movement of rotation. Therefore, one must imagine how the character evolves through each of the emotions.
