Interview with Jacques Perconte

An artist and filmmaker whose work spans the different media of film, multi-channel videos, video installations, generative videos, performances (often in collaboration with musicians) and even operas, Jacques Perconte explores in his work the relations between the atmospheric and chromatic vibrations of the visible world and the ultimate possibilities of digital imaging. In this interview he discusses the work he presented in the exhibition: Le Tempestaire, a generative video of indefinite duration that is directly connected to Jean Epstein’s film Le Tempestaire (1947), famous for the use of various techniques of time manipulation (acceleration, slow motion, reversal, freeze frame) in its final sequence.
