La Méthode des Lieux
2020 - On going
AI generated images, Salt prints
Born from the attempts to decipher the visible, artificial neural networks entertain a close relation to photography. Synthesis and invention at the same time, these images have a photographic texture as well as a very peculiar structure, nebulae of forms, coming from the thousands of images that were used to train the artificial intelligence.
La Méthode des Lieux (The Method of Loci) is built on photographies of various archaic architectures such as of temples, cathedrals, or palaces. These architectures of the past, sometimes ruins only preserved trough photography, constitute an historic foundation built by time. The artificial photography is used to prospect a cartography of utopian spaces and architectures, by evolving in unprecedented places, outside of human understanding.
