Description

ARTIST’S APPROACH

Born in 1989, Raphaël Fabre lives and works in Paris. Through video games, he has become interested in the illusionist potential of synthetic images. He uses them to put the viewer to the test, obscuring the borders between reality and fiction, truth and falsehood. In this way, his work interrogates the universal presence of technology in the representations that surround us, and the way in which computer programs are slowly restructuring our existences.

THE ARTWORK

Photography and documentation, 2017

On April 7, 2017, the artist made a request for a French national identity card, providing as photograph a representation of himself created using 3D software, combining photographic texturing and volume modelling through a process used in video games. The government having accepted this image, he is now officially represented by his digital avatar.
