Maxime Corbeil-Perron CA/QC — OPTX.drips
Maxime Corbeil-Perron’s OPTX.drips is a work of media archeology that features an outdated optical technology and an obsolete medium that has been reinvigorated by digital technology. This installation is grounded in the notion of an optical texture that is only visible using stereoscopic anaglyph (3D, red/cyan) technology, thereby transforming flat projection surfaces into optical membranes that are rich in relief and depth, and is articulated through an abstract, experimental and expressive esthetic.
