Description

Ce projet tente de souligner poétiquement certaines connections discursives intégrées au Audain Art Center. Exposé dans la fenêtre principale de ce bâtiment, l’œuvre étudie le déplacement de sa signification selon la distance (géographique, historique, technologique et émotionnelle) du spectateur. Le titre réfère à un URL compressé donnant accès à un fichier sonore en ligne.

De sa matérialité, le désassemblage de l’œuvre cause sa destruction, même si virtuellement elle pourrait être recréée. Cette page internet pourrait donc être considérée comme une reconstitution digitale.
