Possible strobe light effects
In a low-fi performative universe of abyssal colors and iridescent surfaces, Bright Worms celebrates the necessity of luminous laughs and glows that can emerge from the depths. This multidisciplinary piece pays homage to bioluminescent creatures and explores the possibility of humans generating their own light. The result is an exploratory world of senses, somewhere between the underwater and intra-uterine worlds, where textures, materials, reflections and distortions create a welcoming microcosm. Through athletic prowess and somatic coral dancing, Bright Worms displays its complicity with the strange world of shipwrecks and the unknown.
Louise Michel’s approach focuses on a bodily experience that integrates interdisciplinary research (light devices, video projection and small installations) as extensions of intimacy. Through the prism of bioluminescence, she constructs trajectories between athletic and micro-gestural vocabularies, thresholds of perception and multi-layered landscapes that offer a dreamlike vision of the world.
