Paul Destieu lives and works in Marseille, France. His researches question the evolution of media and their situation in our contemporary environment.

His visual art practice often extends to a wider range of media, looking for new forms of expression and logics through sound, installation, digital practices and architecture. Read more

The project entitled “Archive of a Strike” is focused on the materialization of sound and musical forms. This work suggests a collision of sound and plastic structures by inviting visual practices and contemporary media in a sensitive re-reading of musical languages. The project combines a series of polymorphic creations, resulting from the capture and the analysis of the movements of a percussionist drummer, focused on the emerging tensions between the musician and his instrument. This experiment is based on the temporal and spatial deployment of a gesture, the chopsticks mechanically translating a relation to time by the interpretation of rhythm, and of sound by a physical development. Each stage of the production chain successively proposes a digital appropriation of this unique gesture. Once captured, modelled and printed in three dimensions, the stroke is extracted from its context to freeze the counter-form of the interpreter and the instrument. The archive brings together a series of works between listening and seeing.
