In 2002 works, Xavier Veilhan has explored the translation of virtual images into three-dimensional objects using a variety of media. With the Light Machines, Veilhan applies this virtual-to-physical translation process to moving images. Veilhan transforms low-resolution films from their original digital formats to analog. The analog formats play on grids of 1,024 light bulbs, where each bulb corresponds to a pixel in the digital film. The electronic becomes electric.
