Site-Specific Kinetic Installations by Pinaffo & Pluvinage Channel Modest Materials Into Ephemeral Experiences

Post Image

In the realm where art and technology intersect, Marion Pinaffo and Raphaël Pluvinage, known collectively as Pinaffo & Pluvinage, reign supreme. Their site-specific kinetic installations, crafted from modest materials like paper, cardboard, and sand, transcend the ordinary to create ephemeral experiences of unparalleled beauty.

2023 saw the duo unveiling three major projects, each a testament to their boundless creativity and ingenuity. “Sfumato,” a collection of spinning wooden contraptions emitting spirals of multicolored smoke, captivates viewers with its playful color relationships and mesmerizing motion. The name itself, derived from an Italian technique for shading, hints at the nuanced artistry behind the work.

In “Fanions et Carillons,” strips of colorful fabric dance gracefully in the air, propelled by small motors attached to a large wooden armature. This whimsical choreography of twirling ribbons transforms the space into a dynamic canvas, where motion and color intertwine in a captivating dance.

But perhaps most striking of all is “En Cascade,” a hut-like structure housing an expansive grid of animated compositions activated manually by pouring sand through devices inside. Here, Pinaffo & Pluvinage push the boundaries of their chosen materials, forgoing electricity and computers to create a truly organic experience. The use of sand, sourced from a nearby beach, adds layers of meaning, drawing attention to the substance’s significance in construction and its environmental implications.
