Dry Lights – Xavier Chassaing

‘A trip through an electric desert, Dry Lights unfolds in an imagined environment of cacti and canyons, moving from hidden caves to lonely cliffs along pulsating rivers of light. This experimental film lies somewhere between a site-specific installation and a performance, where choreographed lights meet organic landscapes. Like an imaginary city flickering in the dark, the lights beacon fragments of vague memories – faded moments, experiences, and topographies. A world in an erratic state of flux that seems to evade any grasp of clear control plays host to constantly alternating physical and mental landscapes. Moving without a destination in the dead hours of night, mesmerising, intermittent apparitions illuminate their surroundings, allowing personal narratives to breed.’

A showcase to the latest generation of rendering techniques, enforced with a strong visual style and breathtaking scope, Xavier Chassaing partnering with composer Thomas Vaquié has created a landscape of visual crack. Light flows in organic swaths, dissipating and interacting with the environment; it’s a real eye opener for the progression of 3D rendering and utilises Clarisse, a high end rendering program from Isotropix.
