Congratulations to Vincent Morisset and Caroline Robert of the AATOAA Studio, who won the Digital Arts Award with a $5,000 scholarship from the Conseil for their work Composition!
About the work
Composition is a score that emerged from an exploratory residency at Studio PHI. Months of research and experimentation gave rise to a set of wooden cubes. Audiences interact with and immerse themselves in the work by manipulating the wooden cubes, transforming it with their imagination.
Invoking the lens of sound, it becomes a musical instrument, beat making software or musical score. As scenography, it can be object theatre, a maquette or puppet stage. The work is also an animated film, a sculpture and choreography, brought to life by the hands that move the cubes.
