Pascal Dufaux creates robotic optical devices which he uses to produce photographs and media installations. He recently participated in the 23rd Instants Vido de Marseille (France), organized by Marc Mercier, in the Paranoa exhibition, under the curatorship of Charles Carcopino (Crteil, Maubeuge and Lille, France), at the Mapping Festival under the curatorship of Ana Ascencio in Geneva (Switzerland) and at the Lab30 in Augsburg (Germany). His kinetic video sculpture, Fountain, at been presented as part of the first Biennale internationale d’art numrique (BIAN) organised by ELEKTRA under the curatorship of Alain Thibault in Montreal (Canada). His photographic work was part of the Auto/Pathography exhibition in Innsbruck (Austria) and Montreal (Canada), under the curatorship of Tamar Tembeck.

The work engages digital imagery and robotics in a passive, interactive sculpture using a motorized rotational filming device to move a surveillance camera through a hypocycloidal revolution. The project further explores our series on Expanded Cinema and asks, “Is robotic art the new Paranoid Critical?”
