During this research residency, Anne-F Jacques wants to pay attention to the constant activity that operates in materials: growth, wear and transformation, generation and transformation of energy, propagation of movement, acoustic waves and electricity, cracks and resistance. She experiments with oblique and tinkered techniques of sound amplification and movement generation in order to put different materials in a state of interaction, tension, reciprocal action, blurring the boundaries between the animate and the inanimate, organic and synthetic. At once an open workshop, a barely perceptible performance and an installation in perpetual transformation, the workspace is intended to be a kind of ecosystem oscillating between disturbances and attempts at self-regulation, in which our physical presence is one of several forces at work.
