TATE

2 handled work Based on pictures taken by Azeline Ménigon at The tate gallery in London, here is the first of 2011 wallpapers. Bigger & easier to see version here

Human Machine Complex

A new way, a new life ? The following photomap is partly designed in hugin, partly using gimp… Its my first attempt ever to design a photomap out of a computer assisted program and include it in my work.

Hand-made Reality

The brush and the software The following pair of photomaps have both been designed out of the same picture set. One has been designed out of standard photographic manipulation… The other has been designed using Hugin, a software dedicated to assemble a mosaic of photographs into a complete immersive panorama… A software can’t make mistake…

Postcard Art

A monument is a landscape The following pictures are Photomaps “style” works that are only descriptive. These are not more than beautiful pictures and can’t be considered as being full part of the overall work i endeavoured on composite pictures… Nevertheless, those put the stress on a few key element of my work in a…

Volume Sonore ( ART | CRITIQUES )

Portraying is naming A recent paris-art.com article, about Alma Fury’s installation in Tours, features a picture of mine, portraying the actual work. The text and my work are illustrating the same dimension of the artist’s work. Jérôme Diacre, the author, points out the fact that the installation is yet a genuine design, but made out…

Volume Sonore

( more ) I’ve been a guest of Vonnick & Claude (Alma Fury) for the closing session of volume sonore, an installation they have set up in Tors at the Hotel Goüin. Conferences, performances and concerts took place during the week-end (pictures). I took two extra Photomaps of the installation before it got dismantled but…

Golf Map

Truly faked This Photomap is 50% fake. Most of the sky has been designed and rebuilt out of several spare cloud pictures from my library. I usually don’t do that but i really want to see how far i can go into mannerism with this series. I t explored many formal fields with this concept…

More Photomaps

More to come and less to see Photomaps got very pictorial in the last few years. The formal render often takes the advantage over the process involved in the design and the actual meaning of the works. This isn’t something that i either provoke or prevent. In fact, it is rather a consequence of the…

Warped reality

Sometimes reality sux. Sometimes, when you want to reder it, featuring visible topographic and locative facts. Whenyou want to tender with the visible part of things, the actual expérience you are living with those things and the make an accurate photographic of it… You need to cheat, to distort, influence and rework. Remaster and trick…

You like it, You buy it !

Buy many and make me rich … Some of the Photomaps are part of the summer show taking place in l’ESPACE CORDERO, 7 rue des Bons Enfants 37000 Tours. The prints are of various scales (from 20cm to 120cm). Since its a collective, massive, extensive show dedicated to introduce the “stock artists” to the mases,…

Hotel de Noailles

Not even Drunk ! Yet another cell phone video footage (pretty shaky) from the lounge.Some real nice place there … The result is not as glamorous as the place but is quite a good representation of the vaporous emotion i was feeling wile waiting in a very comfortable nicely designed Italian sofa … Not the…

Austerlitz

Stop Motion This very Photomap has been produced out of 280 video frame taken with my iPhone, a few weeks ago in Paris. The big difference between other photomaps and the ones taken with a classic camera (except for the low definition and crappy image quality)  is that no frame is intentional… Thus, only the…

Sound, Architecture & Photomaps …

More than a picture, less than memories … It has been a long time since i ha not heard about Alma-Fury. I was pleased to “go trough” the installation they’ve set up in Tours at the Hotel Goüin. The quality of the sound and the “human & social” dimension of the work are invisible ….…
