OPENING YOUR MIND TO ALIEN LIFE FORMS
La Sprite is an artificial creature living in the chimneys of the Le Havre EDF power plant. It appears at night, dances, moves, and turns, leaping from one chimney to another by diving into the depths of the earth or jumping towards the dark sky. Programmed based on artificial life algorithms, this moody creature can be happy or tired, edgy or relaxed, fragile or energetic, and is overly sensitive to the weather. Living in the in-between of immaterial light and architectural atoms, at the crossroads of digital programs and wind and water energies, La Sprite opens a gateway to other worlds and reveals invisible forces.
In its 2020 version, La Sprite will find new ways of exploring the EDF power plant chimneys.
