Perspection (squared)​ is a series of audiovisual explorations of the limits of our sonic and visual perception. Anamorphism and illusions of three-dimensional objects are projected on two separate screens, placed orthogonally (90 degrees) from one another, exploring the primacy of the line versus colour.

Motorized hypersonic speakers project narrow beams of sound at the audience. The audience’s senses are confused by psychoacoustic effects that shift between extremely dynamic and static. At the midpoint between interactivity and synchronization, Perspection (squared) explores the properties of the physical space and breaks down conventions of the flat screen through an interplay of light, sound, and colour. 



Perspection is made possible by support from: ARCADI, Centre National de Cinéma, Région Rhône-Alpes, Le Cube, Crossed Lab, Bandits-Mages / EMARE Canada and the Culture 2013 programme of the European Commission.
