STEP and SHOOT
player: FIAC 2010 Paris
Bored by a vision of the world dominated by B2B (Business to Business) and B2C (Business to Consumer) that seem for so many people to be the only way to consider human interactions, I would like to start a series of works called H2H: Human to Human.
The first work of the series would be the manhole covered by a used carpet during Paris FIAC (Foire Internationale d’art Contemporain) 2010. I felt compelled by this reversed foot print, drawn by the visitors of this exhibition where art is for sale. I started thinking of an “interaction design” process: every time a foot touches what I consider as an “interaction zone” I would trigger my photo camera. This very simple human driven interaction process takes an external input to connect two actions: stepping/clicking making me the slave of the program. STEP and SHOOT.
