Dry Lights, an experimental film through the visual label Antivj, is brought to us by independent French artist Xavier Chassaing. In the film, visual effects lead us through a landscape both foreign and familiar feeling. In Chassaing’s first fully computer-generated project, the music draws you into the electrifying experience while the visual scene engages the desert is a dramatic light show.
“Dry Lights is an experimental film that lies somewhere between a site-specific installation and a performance, where choreographed lights meet organic landscapes…Using Oaxaca’s dense and varied vegetation as a living canvas, the artists created an imaginary journey experienced by navigating through the different sound and light artworks installed in the garden. An hour-long night walk through cacti – an illuminated, dream-like exploration – was intentionally disorienting, allowing visitors to lose themselves, consumed by the different artworks.”
