Biography

Rémi Brun has been working for over 20 years as an movement engineer (as others are sound engineers), specialising in motion capture for 3D images & special effects for the cinema as well as scientific research. From being able to manipulate movement in all its shapes & forms, Rémi has come to see movement like a material of its own, independent from its matter, its shape, sound and colour. His job is to bring life in the form of a body in one way or another through the movements he captures through the process of “Motion Capture.” Through Rémi’s private projects, he is trying on the contrary to find ways to extract movement from the body matter.

Rémi creates sculptures that reflect the graceful movement of any living being, from animals, to humans.  This movement can range from the delicate and beauty of the pirouette of a ballerina, to the powerful sprint of a panther catching it’s prey. The range is vast.
