Les Boucan des Arts Festival #6 Evolution

Darwin chez Saint-Pierre : an original & remix work for the Festival done remotely (due to Covid-19) about Charles Darwin's thoughts about religion in images, computer voice over and music.

The video was projected onto a white canvas that was carefully placed over a painting in Saint-Pierre's church and a mask was made in After Effects to fit the painting's frame. Working remotely with the festival and not having the best circumstances, it took a few attempts to get the video aligned properly.

The original painting and other artifacts in the church were included in the video. Darwin's original texts were used and some words, but not many, were omitted. The omitted words are shown as strike-outs in his texts which are included in the PDF below.

For a detailed explanation about each video scene, please see the PDFs below (FRench & ENglish language).
