Raw Reality

 

Raw Reality, installation view SWAB, 2019

Every digital image is composed of a set of data created from a machine; once created, it needs to be translated with another device, thus the image is codified for our eye. I’m interested in this in-between moment, when the created image presents his raw features; using such a traditional technology as oil painting becomes crucial in treating these concepts. Indeed, during my long approach with image design software, learning all their following updates, I could feel that I was not acquiring any proper knowledge but just dispositions determined mostly by economic and bureaucratic laws. Thus I opted for traditional technology, probably because they detain a truth everybody can trust.

Books gonna read you is the title of this new body of oil on linen paintings, which refers to how technology could be able to collect your behaviour as data meanwhile you are using it, and questioning on how technology is able to collect your behaviour as data meanwhile you are using it, or record your biodynamic figures when you are just log into your devices. A cast of our present that is just passing through.
