‘La Roue’ is a timelapse video made from a series of 160 photographic snapshots taken over ten days. The successive images are treated by computer, leaving a large area of each image transparent, thus conferring a post-impressionist aesthetic on the recreated landscape.


Jean-Michel Rolland is a French artist born in 1972. He has been a musician and a painter for a long time and has brought his two passions – sound and image – together in digital art works since 2010. With video art, generative art, audiovisual performances and interactive installations, he questions temporality – a genuine fourth dimension 0 which is inherent in the moving image, as well as the duality that exists between his two favorite media.
