De Mohamed Bourouissa installation 2010

  • 2010 - Exhibition Panorama 12 au Le Fresnoy - Studio national des arts contemporains, Tourcoing de Tourcoing (FR)

Last year I made a video with a mobile phone. It was a correspondence between two individuals: one enclosed and the other free. During the making of the film, I realised the essential nature of the aesthetic of these images, as much photographic as filmic, due to the compressed form of the images. This gave a deeper legibility of the subject treated. But I realised that one could be inventive with certain objects such as a sort of heating ring made of found objects like cans and bits of string, etc. This new work is inspired by all these ideas. I built a machine using a fairly rudimentary system, which scans individuals to produce 3D virtual objects, there again with a loss of information about the person scanned. Then, I make sculptures with these scanned characters on a reduced scale that ends up being compressed in its turn by forming a small dimensional sculptural object. All these techniques, like a 3D scanner or the stereo-lithographic technique are technologies that require consequential financial support. But, as I explained before, I looked into these technologies in a rather indirect way, in sort of do-it-yourself fashion. This piece is also an individual experiment in the face of new technologies which invade our everyday. M.B
