An emblematic figure of optical art as it was at the end of the 1950s, using chromatic vibration phenomena and repetition of geometric figures, Jess Rafal Soto was Venezuelan by origin. He went to Paris in 1950 and took part in many exhibitions involving real or virtual movement, including the major exhibition Le Mouvement in 1955. He quickly became interested in the problematic of spaces, and he created structures that react to the spectators movements. By virtue of their spectacular dimensions, Immaterial Vibrations, Penetrables and Kinetic Environments produce astonishing optical effects and demonstrate the relativity of vision.
Catherine Zins documentary is structured around an interview conducted by Daniel Abadie in the artists studio and in the museum space dedicated to him in Venezuela. It follows the extraordinary path of an artist who brought together the physical and the virtual with masterly subtlety..
