Later, in the film, he says: “I want to be carried.” Soth yearns for a subject to overwhelm his curiosity, leading him into places and situations that he couldn’t have otherwise foreseen. Photography is his means of discovering both the self and the Other, and where the two meet. It is how he finds “a path through the world.” In terms of their public actions, Rudolph and Merton mark the extremes. Art Project, powered by Google. Jeff Wall.

Dall’altro ha creato qualcosa di nuovo, rappresentando i supereroi come figure di carta piegata.

Over 15 years ago the French artist and new media theorist Edmond Couchot adjudged: “the fate of image is from now on numerical.”

Let There Be Triangulated Art

In a series of articles, Couchot pondered how the techniques of numeric configuration (that is, computer graphics) can change the nature of art. “They do it as they are employed to control all automatic images (photography, cinema, television) because they will be, in the short or medium term, transmuted into numbers to be able to be registered, manipulated, broadcasted, preserved, retouched. Those techniques cannot be ignored by artists who are looking for new experiences and new perceptible investigations," he prophesied. Couchot’s “prediction” has not only been proven in plenty examples of contemporary tech-infused art, but is also found in all activities related to number decoding on our digital files.

Nuit Blanche 2011 : prédestinée au succès !

Pour avoir testé… C’est confirmé ! Mais on oublie bien vite face aux bonnes surprises du parcours. EmailShare 16EmailShare Ça y est les chiffres sont tombés ! La demande et le besoin de culture étaient vraiment là. Certes… Pas vraiment de doute possible pour tous ceux qui se sont laissés tenter par la veillée nocturne : la lutte était bien souvent longue, épuisante, voire perdue d’avance pour accéder à certains espaces… Ce fut le cas de l’œuvre de Pierre Ardouvin : l’une des grandes victimes de l’affluence.

Frankfurt School: The Culture Industry: Enlightenment as Mass Deception

THE sociological theory that the loss of the support of objectively established religion, the dissolution of the last remnants of pre-capitalism, together with technological and social differentiation or specialisation, have led to cultural chaos is disproved every day; for culture now impresses the same stamp on everything. Films, radio and magazines make up a system which is uniform as a whole and in every part. Even the aesthetic activities of political opposites are one in their enthusiastic obedience to the rhythm of the iron system. Yet the city housing projects designed to perpetuate the individual as a supposedly independent unit in a small hygienic dwelling make him all the more subservient to his adversary – the absolute power of capitalism.
