Constructing the 'Real

"In its simplest form, my work is concerned with the real in the virtual. I am fascinated by technology and eager to find new ways of making images; I also like to subtract things from the real world. I observe, study and isolate objects, I often rework them in the studio, always with this will to conjure something through this work, to try to take the viewer somewhere.Planche(s) Contact allowed me to think about how to bring my practice closer to the world of computer generated imagery. Through a process based on photography but dependent on software, I opted for the idea of commercialism by considering it in virtual terms. I scanned objects with a camera and then used these images to create data points that were then translated into a 3D model, to which a virtual "varnish" was applied. The geometry resided in the production via rendering software that allowed me to imagine a new studio environment while exploring the possibilities offered by a new digital aesthetic."
