Rémi Brun has been working for over 20 years as an movement engineer (as others are sound engineers). Rémi specialises in motion capture for 3D images and special effects for the film industry, as well as developing the technology further for scientific research. From being able to manipulate movement in all its shapes and forms, Rémi has come to see movement as a material of its own, independent from its matter, its shape, sound and colour. The artist brings life in the form of a body in one way or another through the movements he captures using Motion Capture. Through Rémi’s private projects, he is trying, on the contrary, to find ways to extract movement from the body matter.
Rémi creates sculptures that reflect the graceful movement of any living being, from animals through to human beings. The movement has to be interesting, recognisable and dynamic. This movement can range from the delicate and beautiful pirouette of a ballerina, to the powerful sprint of a panther catching its prey. The range is vast.
