Plantoidori Culture space, 5 September 2022, Villeneuve-d’Ascq.

Plantoidori
from Monday, September 5 to Thursday, October 27 at Espace Culture
** Plantoidori ** is the culmination of AIRLab (Artist in Research Immersion in a Laboratory), an art residency organized by the Department of Culture at the University of Lille in collaboration with Le Fresnoy. The aim is to invite an artist to dialogue with a research laboratory at the University of Lille to cross artistic creation, research and dissemination to bring out a unique work that mixes art and science. The artist Dewi Brunet has joined forces with INRIA’s DEFROST laboratory at the University of Lille. Dewi is a folding artist. Self-taught, he has practiced this discipline for more than fifteen years specializing in monumental folding, structured curling, pleating and Oribotic. A still little-known practice, Dewi considers folding as a technique, a means of expression, and an interdisciplinary field of research. His artistic projects meet today about the sensitive relationship between man, the living world and technology. INRIA’s DEFROST research team focuses on deformable robotics, a new field in robot technology, where robots are no longer made of rigid materials, but on the contrary of soft materials or flexible structures. The team’s research themes relate to the numerical simulation of the behavior of these robots, to design and control. For the Plantoidori project, Dewi and DEFROST explored the field of Oribotic and highlighted the aesthetic, biomechanical and morphological connections between nature, origami and robotics. At the bottom of the project: to reopen ways of sensitivity to the living and the machines. A question asked by the philosophers Baptiste Morizot and Gilbert Simondon. Like artist-researcher Matthew Gardiner, Dewi seeks to reveal the potential of electromechanical organisms through the fold. Initiating bio-inspired folded structures can pave the way for new forms of consideration and interaction between the plant kingdom and humans.
