Installation for Odyssud in Blagnac (France) for a personal exhibition.
Only 25% of the deep seas have been explored. These unknown territories are a real playground for imagination. Sometimes terrifying, but always fascinating, these living beings remain mysteries for scientists. Once the lights are off, the fishes reveal a bit of their secrets, irradiating the room with bioluminescence. The installation is like a surreal encounter with the most inaccessible creatures on earth.
Local photographer Laurent Kronental has created ‘Souvenir d’un Futur’ since 2011. A series of stunning photographs documenting these neglected communities and capturing what he calls ‘the poetry of ageing environments’.

The installation "Forest of Numbers" visualized the decade of the future from 2017 to 2026, created a sense of stillness across the large exhibition space. More than 60,000 pieces of suspended numeral figures from 0 to 9 were regularly aligned in three dimensional grids. A section was removed, created a path that cut through the installation, invited visitors to wonder inside the colorful forest filled with numbers.
The installation was composed of 10 layers which is the representation of 10 years time. Each layer employed 4 digits to express the relevant year such as 2, 0, 1, and 7 for 2017, which were randomly positioned on the grids. As part of Emmanuelle’s "100 colors" installation series, the layers of time were colored in 100 shades of colors, created a colorful time travel through the forest.
Each piece is primarily a kinetic artwork that doubles as a futuristic clock with out the usual construction methods to represent the time. Tempus uses state of the art digital LED’s that illuminate three different rings of segments in sequence to collectively represent a 12 hour time path. The central ring is the seconds units, once all 60 units illuminate then the first in the minutes ring illuminates. Once all 60 minutes segments illuminate the first hour segment will illuminate and the cycle continues.

Potentially launching in 2017, this eco-responsible home means one less tree getting cut down throughout the years.
Nike’s Global Sportswear team challenged Leviathan to get the right people talking about–and testing out–the brand’s new winter line of SneakerBoots and Tech Pack Aeroloft jackets. Launched in Shanghai, the event–dubbed Test Stride–invited media and VIP influencers to experience both lines’ weatherproof benefits, first-hand.
Invented by Leviathan, hi-tech product displays guided participants to the core attraction: a 170-foot-long interactive obstacle course–complete with jagged terrain, a flooded street and barricaded alley. This competitive event used human motion to trigger visuals and track participant’s scores in real-time, while an automatic photo-capture feature displayed their victory across a vivid 30-ft-wide display.
Nike Test Stride moved beyond familiar product trials to create an authentic and shareable experience for not-easily-impressed attendees. Coverage of the event was global, generating excitement around Nike’s release for premiere streetwear and fashion media outlets.
