AboutMaxime Van Roy
Born in La Louvière, Maxime Van Roy moved at a very young age to the Nice region in the south-east of France. After obtaining a degree in Communication, he decided to go back to art school in his home region at Arts2 in Mons. After graduating with a Master’s degree in “Image in the Environment”, he is now an assistant in his former school and provides individual technical support to students.
During his last year of study, the installation Sibilation won the “Prix Tremplin du Ministre/Président de la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles” in 2020.

Caption: Belgian limestone, corrugated PVC tubes, DC 12v motors.
Intention: A regular flow of air – produced by the rotation of PVC tubes – over the asperities of the opening of small cavities, generates turbulences that the resonance transforms into harmonic standing waves. Melodious whistles – caused by the wavelength allowed by each tube – implement this sound principle which can be generated both naturally and artificially.
