Railwave is a site-specific installation, held during the 15th fête de la lumière in Chartres, France. A light and sound intervention on the “Marché aux légumes”, an art nouveau iron structure which is still used as a weekly food market. This architectural space is intervened with LED profiles which augment the perception of the structure, and with a multichannel audio setup which spatialices sound in a realistic manner.
Railwave presents an audiovisual metaphor of a train travel. Moving the audience from departure station until the final destination, light and multichannel sound is used to re-create a set of different worlds. In this futuristic trip through abstract landscapes, auditory and visual perspective effects make the audience travel without moving.
