sillage

Sillage takes the form of a basin filled with a deep black water on which is projected a fine and regular grid, topographic marker highlighting the perfect flatness of the liquid. Regularly, a distant rumbling, subterranean disturbs the silence. The vibration travels the visitor's body. On the water a wave propagates, deforming the light grid. Then everything becomes quiet until the next shock. From the signals recorded by different sensors during an earthquake in Chile in 2008, the artists have reproduced the sounds and telluric waves of the earthquake. The work is thus a kind of seismic waves sculpture.
