ABOUT THE SHOW

The Panoscopic Journal, undertaken by Courchesne in 1999, documented moments of Courchesne whereabouts as he traveled to exhibit his interactive portraits and developed immersive projection systems of his own. His goal with the Journal was, essentially then, to get familiar with the novel point of view offered by the catadioptric lens he was using. In this exhibition, Courchesne continues his Journal to questions more directly this time the concept of place, of the observing subject and of the novel nature of the worlds one is now invited to step in. Nothing is less certain than these « locations » presented as « switchable » realities. We are also very pleased to present Where are you? (2005); an immersive existence simulator and tele-presence apparatus in which visitors are invited to fly, as in dreams, through a world of many dimensions, between past and future, light and darkness, the public and private. This immersive display uses a custom designed 'panoscopic' projector above, that projects in real time a rendering of the entire horizon onto the hemispheric screen in which one person can participate at a time.
