Around 360BC, Plato wrote his dialogue Timaeus (Timée), in which he imagined the universe as a geocentric system, including a concept called Music of the Spheres where the distance between each planet is the equivalent of a musical interval, and comprises a perfect musical score. This harmonious representation has long influenced astronomy and continues to inspire artists and scientists today. At the heart of Première Vision Fabrics, Guillaume Marmin (design and creation) and Philippe Gordiani (sound composition) present TIMÉE, an immersive audio-visual installation, inspired by the dialogue of Plato, created in collaboration with the Astrophysical Research Centre of Lyon and produced by French agency TETRO. Enter this experimental bubble where time seems to have stopped, and let your senses transport you.
