We present an experimental and numerical study on the effects of a translational nonlocal coupling induced on localized structures (LS) in the context of nonlinear optics. LS are obtained in a light-valve experiment and made to drift by a mirror tilt in the feedback loop. Phase singularities are detected for small drifts, whereas for large drifts, periodic organizations are observed.
