Transfluence is a series of short silent video clips (<1 min) projected back to back on a wall outside the Café 4 jeudis. Each sequence is a visual haiku in three views. The aesthetic aspects of the images are blurred, faded and painterly.

Raymond Aubin is a photographer and visual artist. He is interested in public places and how we are connected to them. He explores their paradoxes: withdrawal and reconciliation, transience and permanence, constraint and freedom, concern and safety. He looks into the phenomenology of everyday life, where the bizarre often overlaps with the familiar in an orderly chaos. Aubin works the plasticity of photography and its staging. He prefers the combination of both blurry and sharp images and large field angles. Even if the starting points are spontaneous, the final product can be very structured. He experiments with photomontage, wide panorama shots, split-screen shots and with photography as an object. He also uses video and recording.
