Nathalie Junod Ponsard
Visual artist, Paris, France
Aristotle called colour pharmakon, i.e. drug
In Barthes’ view, colour submerges
In an attempt to identify and propose new visual dimensions, I emphasise the major influence our environment has on us. I explore and choose real built sites, and transform them by means of artificial or natural light. My installations give rise to new visions, changing the way we look at these places. They affect the senses by immersing the visitors in coloured baths of light, created by certain wavelengths.
Visitors discover my aesthetic creation by entering – visually, physically and psychologically – the light structures, aware of the influence and exchanges with their own environment, but at the same time being engrossed by this light.
