The laser - Light Amplification by stimulated Emission of Radiation - L.A.S.E.R. - differs from ordinary light by: only one direction, a more intense emission, a monochrome light beam. My first research with the laser dates back to 1968. It is for me a controllable material, as stable as a metal bar, it allows me to create structures in space and luminous environments by establishing all around a given space networks of light. With the laser, light is used as an object. The technology is often seen as a constraint that can imprison the artist. The opposite is true here. I found in this research a liberated poetic expression of unsuspected diversity.

The creation of figures in space where rhythms of construction and bursting alternate is achieved with the help of mechanical mirrors and metal prisms. The controlled or random arrangements could be modified by the spectator. The participation of the spectator is essential, too often reduced to a passive intervention, to an element of random disturbance without appealing to his intelligence, his creative capacities, his sensitivity. For me there is not the work and the spectator: his intervention creates new relationships. The object is no longer an end in itself. The work is the dialectic that is established between the object and the spectator. Joël Stein
