De Joseph David installation 2010

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

The machine is sensitive to its environment. It can panic, jam. It is psychotic. "What is very interesting with psychosis, is that you don't realise where you end and where the world begins. So, for example, if I was psychotic, I would literally not see the difference between myself, this table and the person I am talking to. They would all be part of the same continuum. »(Sarah Kane) A machine, a camera, a motorised joystick, a screen, a patient, a psychiatrist, visitors… A camera on the motorised joystick films the screen. On this screen, the text of a play projected onto the ceiling. The machine has a voice, that of a suicidal psychotic patient. The space also has a voice, that of a psychiatrist, spread around the space by loudspeakers. The visitor finds himself deep in the neuralgic heart of a strange dialogue: that of a neurotic machine in its environment. The machine is a metaphor for humanity, the word love might be its mechanism. J.D
