Kraken

Ongoing series
Landscapes are invaded by giant octopuses.

They represent flux which normally pass by unnoticed. At once threatening and burlesque. Do we believe in them? Do they frighten us?

Millennia ago, mythical sea monsters known as Kraken described in Scandinavian legends, sunk ships and devoured sailors. Here, they re-emerge in our superabundant, hyper-connected world to signify in material form a constant process of densification and acceleration.

From shapes there emerges a flow of digital images superimposed on silver print photography with a very pronounced grain.

Here, 6 hours of plane flow is visible : no one is missing. They take off and land on the same runway of Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport.

Ils atterrissent et décollent de la même piste de l’aéroport Roissy-Charles de Gaulle.

This series poses questions about our collective desire to defy time. Are we the ones who create these flows, or are we caught up in forces we are no longer able to control?

Will these new Kraken drown Humanity, like they did sailors all that time ago in the Scandinavian legends?
