VIRUS
Animation art, 2011

Concept

 

A video on the obsessive manipulation of my own image, which becomes a metaphor for the general confusion between real and virtual of the Société du spectacle prefigured by Guy Debord. The digital culture and its tools have become a self-destructive virus.

 

I could work on the face of Osama Bin Laden, but the fake photo-montage spread by the media as proof of his death is already an unattainable work of art. I then brought the concept within myself, in the heart of my feminine self-destructiveness, where the pen of the tablet becomes an augmented surgical scalpel deep into the void.
