E.L.V.I.S. (Électro-lux, vertige illimité synthétique) Alain Thibault

We find ourselves in the middle of a living labyrinth. Time and space are the forms of this labyrinth. E.L.V.I.S. is an artificial construction, an ARTIFACT whose purpose it is to help us find the way out, an exit that changes constantly. E.L.V.I.S. is not a religion, it is an extremely advanced technology. When we escape from the labyrinth, we find ourselves free of time and space.

The sections of the piece are interpretations of the eight phases in the mutation of life as described Timothy Leary in his book, Exo-Psychology. “… in order to reach the stars, the biological robot must reach its inner self, become master of its body, of its brain, of its DNA…”

La réalisation de cette œuvre a été rendue possible grâce à la généreuse contribution du fond de développement de la recherche, Campagne des années 80, et du programme Intervention nouvelle, art et innovation du ministère des Affaires culturelles du Québec.
