Phenomenological images are photographs engraved on plastic surfaces set in resonance. With these new images whose colors move according to the movement of the observer, the forms are born of the iridescence of the material. The phenomenological images are declined in series, to form a set of matter-lights resulting from various mineral elements. The different visions that appear from this physical process raise the question of the minerality of the images.

Graduated from Ensad, Lucien Bitaux invented Scoposcopy, a discipline that aims to represent imperceptible dimensions. He continued his work on the visible during his residency at the Cité internationale des Arts and at the Fresnoy, national studio of contemporary arts in Tourcoing. He then realized the project “Les Liminaux, metamorphosis of the being in its vision”. Naively, he seeks other ways to capture and show reality. This experimental approach is based on the manufacture of his own instruments. Photography, optical capture and light projection are his favorite mediums. Today, he is beginning a thesis in artistic creation entitled “Explorative imagery – a relation between astronomical visualizations and experimental photographic practices”, co-directed by Nathalie Delbard and Melik Ohanian in partnership with the Fresnoy and the University of Lille in France. He has exhibited in several places, such as La Générale or La Villette.
