De Mathilde Lavenne, installation 2016

  • 2016 - Exhibition Panorama 18 au Le Fresnoy - Studio national des arts contemporains, Tourcoing de Tourcoing (FR)

Is there a digital afterlife? And if there is, what messages might it send us, and in what form? What would be the connection between nature, matter and the world of shared data that we are in the process of creating? Artefact #0 Digital Necrophony is a digital sound installation which partakes of archaeological research into the medium, involving communication and basic metaphysical questioning related to the scientific instrument. The installation is inspired by Edison’s cylinder gramophone. It reproduces that instrument’s form while transforming its workings in the effort to capture messages from another dimension via waves and vibrations. The ensemble offers a critical look at the way the digital era has revolutionised our relation to matter and to nature. This is sublimated and reflected by a black marble monolith which is isolated and studied as if it were a sarcophagus – something strange, enigmatic and mortuary.
