Marée noire (Oil spill)
This artwork is connected to internet and is scanning in real-time the RSS feeds of the medias.
The drop of ink slowly slides from up to down of the monitor before falling to the ground.
It dries slowly on the floor and it darken more and more the sheets of paper from newspapers put on the ground.
In this work, the negative influence of media are dissolved inside the black ink and gradually invades the physical space under the work.
The ink stain of dark increases with the time and invides the territory like an oil spill. The influence of information becomes a physical accumulation: result of a slow media propaganda.
The media streams can affect in an indelible way our body, our mind. The screen, as a technological support for dissemination is here the sensitive witness of these media blasts.
"Oil spill" also refers to the energy consumption linked to the data servers and the manufacturing of technological support.
This oil spil increases like his energetic and environmental impacts.
