Still Living (a, b, e, f, g, h, i, j)

Series of infinite visual installations. Computer, specific algorithm Courtesy: the artist

This series of visual installations revolves around the concept of living graphics: graphics using immediately readable visual codes –pie-charts, bars, curves, etc.– but animated by the same internal forces that they are supposed to describe. The sign and the thing become one. Each artwork is infinite and autonomous, a particular delicate situation: a still life, but living. The series allows the artist to explore in a more precise manner the “aesthetics of the action” that programming as a material enables. Finally, Still Living takes a voluntarily political stand by making the living pulsate under the ubiquitous charts of our daily life.
