Presentation

Proxima is the story of a man following a vibrant light into the night. Whenever he is about to reach it, it shirks. Keep staring at the glimmer !, for the menace prowls above and below ...

We are prisoners in this immense world between the two unknowns that are birth and death. This shirking light represent that frustrating feeling we have to always be about to grasp infinity. But the nearest star is trully so far away.

Is this world real or deceptive ? « Proxima » puts in abyss cinematic VR, a technology plunging us in a spherical mesh of triangles upon which moving images are mapped. Can VR provide access to a beyond we wouldn't know otherwise?

SYNOPSIS / INTENTION

A vibrant light leads a man into the night. He follows it without knowing where it takes him. Whenever he is about to reach it, it shirks, and drags him further. Above all, do not take your eyes off it ! Because the threat prowls: above and below ...

PROXIMA is a spatio-temporal loop, a search for the infinite. It is a vision, as an echo to the poem of Charles Baudelaire ""The Abyss"". We are a prisoner between the two unknowns that are birth and death, in the immensity of the world, between our disproportionate impulses of Eros and Thanatos. Each second brings its share of illusions. We think we can grab the glimmer that would tell everything, explain everything. But it moves away ever more, and when it comes to rest at last, it delivers nothing of its intention, or about what would be on other side. This shirking light represent that feeling of total frustration we have, sensing that, this infinite world, we could almost grasp it. A least we have this illusion within ourselves.

But is this world real or deceptive ? What is what we are looking at ? PROXIMA puts in abyss cinematic VR, a technology which plunges us into a virtual sphere, in a mesh of triangles upon which moving images are mapped. Our actions triggers these images and their eternal renewal gives us the illusion of grasping a real world. With a headset over the eyes or eyes wide open out in the open, does our sight go beyond the big sphere of atmosphere in which we are immersed ?"
