Artistic project : Paradigme objet
It is clear that our cohabitation with an increasing quantity of products and goods is not ready to slow down. The multiplicity of these is matched only by the creativity of the various designers who are busy making them more refined, more desirable and more beautiful. This is easily observable for some of them, who truly capitalize on the user's attachment to the said object: smart phones, tablets, video games. In the Les Rutilants series, I devote myself to developing a lexicon based on the codes of industrial design to generate compositions of the still life genre. By playing on the materiality of it, I comment on our relationship to consumption and entertainment.
