Event Description:  On 4 October 2007, Franck Ancel will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first launch of an artificial satellite, '1957-2007: from Sputnik Satellite to Explorer Art' a creation that will be broadcast exclusively over the Internet between7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Paris time. While this international year of the Sputnik - one of this year's national commemorations in France - is giving rise to scientific conferences, the event presented by Franck Ancel creates an original,live link between past and future, expanding to other fields of research. The site of the great Meudon wind tunnel, part of ONERA's heritage is the venue from which this conference/performance about the history of the arts of the conquest of the skies and space will be broadcast.From the late-19th century painter Odilon Redon and 'The Eye Like a Strange Balloon (that) Mounts Toward Infinity', to Jacques Polieri with his 'Satellite auditorium project', contemporary with the lunar astronauts, by way of V. Tatline or L. Fontana... the sky has struck the imagination and the cosmos has become visionary for artists.In the age of sustainable development and emerging economies, the whole world does not yet communicate directly via satellites for mobile telephony, for long-range weather forecasts and other tools such as GPS devices, but they set the pace of our daily life. As in the past, contemporary creators make their own times their subject matter. Some are even imagining how to test weightlessness in ways other than as future space tourists.In collaboration with Joachim Montessuis for the sound environment and Julien Bittner for the editing of the images, in partnership with France Streaming, this work will be broadcast to any computerQuickTime video player, streamed over the Net from this address: rtsp://
