ACRYLIC PAINTING, BLACK FELT AND POSCA
60 x 101 cm
I often take screenshots of articles that have particularly marked me. When the article's title draws my attention, I first look at the number of likes and comments. If I judge them high enough, I then undertake to read them, and it is only after then that I decide whether or not to open the article.
These multiple filtering is a way to distance myself from the unreliable and dangerous informations that are disclosed on the Internet.
By their transcription in painting I try to give to these screenshots a new status . I extract some information - including the image - to focus attention on ordinary news. The idea is to give them a timelessness and detach them completely from the Screenroll (principle of scrolling quickly through the articles presented on the screen).
