The Chromatographs were conceived for the Chromatic festival, organised by the Massivart collective, whose mission is to make art more accessible to the public.
La Camaraderie revisited drawing machines like the harmonograph (that appeared in Europe in the middle of the 19th century) to create a contemporary version of them, adapted to the context of animation in the public space.
Thanks to their mecanism of pendulums, the Chromatographs can create fascinating elliptical drawings! Participants are invited to activate the mecanism of the two pendulums, and the crossing of the sheet movement with the pen one creates a singular outline.
All participants can leave with their unique drawing.
Since then, the Chromatographs were presented at the launch of Printemps Numérique, at the opening of new De Serres shops, at the TED conference in HEC Montreal and at the OUMF Festival.
