“Déplacements” consists of 24 computer case fans forming a rectangle. Each fan is “pixel”, its number of revolutions and the intensity of the light of its LED varies according to the level of gray corresponding to the pixel of reference. This screen of fans is controlled by a computer simulating a cellular automata entitled “The game of life” (created by John Horton Conway in 1970). It is a mathematical model where each fans is a cell. “Displacement” is a hijack of this object, a component of the computer becoming image. It is not a question of a physical “displacement” but of a movement, a flow.
