Alex Andrix had already collaborated in October 2018 with the Physics laboratory on a work entitled "Variations physiques" (Physical Variations).
Portraits is a format of collaboration where Alex Andrix immerse himself in the world and the work of a scientist to create a piece of art.
Attempting to grasp as much as he can of the theori
es behind the experiments, Alex Andrix likes to go down to reading books and publications in the field, chosen by the researcher. Doing some calculation himself enables him to practice a bit and can be the base for how he structures the piece of art in the end.
For this first collaboration, Portraits, n°1, the immersion was done at Laboratoire de Physique at ENS de Lyon, and more particularly with Ludovic Bellon and his team.
