Ecotone

network installation, 2015

Ecotone generates an infinite landscape from live capture of tweets read by synthesized voices, which all have in common to express desires : I wish, I would love, I would be so great… A camera endlessly moves on in slow motion through this artificial paradise, as an addiction that would never stop.

Extracted from their original context and from the codes of a social network, these personal thoughts (and sometimes very close) are thus projected into a collective space and form an involuntary narrative. Through the issues of these words thrown like prayers or messages in a bottle, the work questions the permanent visibility and the traces of these lives on the internet, addressing the fluctuating boundaries of privacy and secret.

Programing and artistic collaboration: Olivier Guillerminet. Coproduction: Thierry Fournier, Lux Scène nationale de Valence, with support from Scan Rhône-Alpes grant, Dicréam grant, with support from Synesthesie.
