This short 3D animation clip introduces Renewable Energy Art project (REA) and Trans Nature Art (TNA), born in France in 1992, with the characters Stellest and Steline. They are a metaphor for environmental protection and renewable energy applicable to all areas of life (New World Civilization).
Stellest was a student of Jules Engel at the California Institute of the Arts (Experimental Animation). At the present, Stellest works with Romain Caudron (3D Modeler) in the south of France.
Created in 1993, this sketch represent a solar fountain exposed at Marina Bay des Anges. There are two original drawings. One of wich is in Jacque Chave’s art collection, the other in a private collection in Switzerland.
It introduces, with my work on the Solar Head, the begining of my works on Renewable Energy Arts.
This is a first step in the design of a fountain, adapted from this drawing. Here is an overview of the 3D model.
It was so cool to meet James Trussart at Havana. We participated at a great party at Buena Vista Social Club. He is a great master for the conception of inovative metal guitares wich have the best sound for playing. In my case, ecological experimental blues music. He is a very humble man despite him, building world class guitares.
Together, we spent several hours to conceive an ecological experimental rock’n roll guitare.
I remember the two of us were inspired by all the creative car parts of the 50s which one can admire accross Havana streets.
Unlike creating a guitare for the world music scene, James was cool to conceive an eco- guitare for Trans Nature and Renewable Energy Art Stellest. I shall use it for my experimental music performances.
With a group of friends, we renewed our hearts with Hemingway, the salsa cuban groove, as well as the scene at Buena Vista social club.
A very special thank you to the James Trussart atelier in Hollywood, California for this incredible Steel Caster guitare. Last thing, the turquoise color patine of this instrument are “Top”!
So honoured to have my work inspire a class at the University of Chicago in the Energy and Global Environment: Science, History and Politics department. Professor Susan Dardar looks at Trans Nature Art to better understand and promote sources of alternative and renewable energies.

“For a country as small as 40 000 km2 counting only three million inhabitants, Switzerland produced as many internationally famous artists as Jean Tinguely, Giovanni y Alberto Giacometti, Le Corbusier, Amédée Ozenfant, Ferdinand Hodler, Cuno Amiet, Félix Vallotton, Paul Klee, Emma Kunz, Eugène Grasset, Meret Oppenheim, Hermann Scherer, Daniel Will, Patrice Stellest, Oskar Lüthy, among others.”
