NETICONES (2011)

Full Description

A partir des logotypes miniatures qui ont envahi notre quotidien virtuel, Systaime, en conciliant la technologie numérique et l'art ancestral de la mosaïque, recompose à plus grande échelle des portraits de célébrités contemporaines. De l'icône aux Icônes, la fractalisation de la représentation abolit la discontinuité entre forme et fond. Rendu à son iconographie, la figuration d'oeuvres majeures de l'histoire de l'art et de la culture pop rejoint par sa praxis échantillonniste le rubickubisme d'un Space Invader. Pour autant, ces Neticones, en dressant une passerelle entre religion, Pop Culture et réseaux sociaux, questionnent notre rapport haptique à l'image. Si au Moyen Âge, l'adoration se prolongeait jusqu'au touché et au baiser dévot, les icônes virtuelles apparaissent pour être cliquées ; frénétiquement. Les réseaux sociaux nouvelle religion d'amour et de partage où tout un chacun « like /aime» ce que tout un chacun « share / partage » produisent, comme d'autres pouvoirs temporels avant eux, de véritables rites avec leurs valeurs, leurs martyres, leurs cérémonies et leur support d'adoration : les neticones. L'oeuvre (work in progress) est déclinée/déclinable sur tout support : site web, livre, tirages photos, application facebook, Streetart, installation interactive...

From logos thumbnails that have invaded our everyday virtual Systaime while combining digital technology and the ancient art of mosaic, reconstructs a larger scale portraits of contemporary celebrities. Icons to the icon, the fractal representation abolishes the discontinuity between form and content. Returned to its iconography, the representation of major works of art history and pop culture joined by his praxis échantillonniste the rubickubisme a Space Invader. However, these Neticones by compiling a bridge between religion, pop culture and social networks, haptic question our relationship to the image. If the Middle Ages, worship touched and dragged to the devout kiss, virtual icons appear to be clicked; frantically. Social networks new religion of love and sharing where everyone “like / love” that everyone “share / share” produce, like other temporal powers before them, real rituals with their values, their martyrs , their ceremonies and their support of worship: the neticones. The work (work in progress) is declined / déclinable in any medium: website, book, photo prints, facebook application, Streetart, interactive installation …

It read “webcam”, the process of metamorphosis neticone webaunaute in the figure archaeological. Modern Medusa, the webcam turns in direct, a fleeting moment in a time of crystallization. Stone by stone, the image-temple was built, and this construction is contemplation. In contrast to an erosion of corruption, degradation, unlike the time, therefore, the scanning process, reduced by a basic grammar, acquire a sort of classicism stripped of any nostalgia retro 80′s to simply recreate the emotion that was the introduction of the binary image, its mystery and mystical beauty: make the figure number, to face a shadow, to a moment, an eternity.
