Motion Works is an art project created by the French director Paul Mezier. It uses Virtual Reality to explore perceptions that are impossible to reproduce in the real world.
Motion Works is conceived as a series of unique VR experiences. They can be exhibited as an ensemble or as independent pieces in art galleries, festivals and museums.
Although their nature is abstract and highly conceptual, each episode is built with an independent story, so that the viewer enjoys a transformative development going through each piece.
The series is inspired by the work of influential artists such as James Turrell, Anish Kapoor or Julio Le Parc. It aims for a similar quality as an experience for the viewer.
Some episodes offer an interpretation of physical phenomena beyond human perception, such as gravitational waves. All build on a synaesthetic language rooted in scientific theory.
As of November 2017, one episode is produced and available for screening.
More are coming.
