photographic print on Japanese paper + 58 steel nails on the wall with nylon threads / length can be adjusted cropping the print to available wall space / ideally it should be placed by a window or door to move with natural wind - but a mechanic fan can be used instead.
LES FOURMIS photographic installation is composed of 57 digital images printed continuously on Japanese rice paper.
Hanging on a sequence of minimal nails and transparent nylon threads, the piece is activated by air movement (natural wind-blow or a gentle fan)
The mass of depicted humans walk past and forward in a mechanical way, following a linear path that is then replicated by the viewers.
An urban and social tale to remind us of the ambiguous presence of nature and robotics as we perform a particular task as automatons.
