With a text by Pierre-Nicolas Bounakoff

“For contemporary artists, the grid is not the result of a turn-of-the-century, modernist geometry anymore, but a machine-generated object, endlessly reproducible without the intervention of a human hand. Call if halftone, bitmap or raster, it is always one of the many forms of mechanical or digital processing, by which an image or a three-dimensional shape is turned into a multitude of coloured dots, or pixels, arranged in a logical matrix. This is how digital cameras, computers and printers handle images. Any object can be transformed into mathematical data, and this data can be used again to produce an image displayed on a screen, printed on paper, on canvas, or carved into any material. In a curiously ambiguous evolution, the technique offers new possibilities to work with as much as a form of mechanization to fight against, while the man-machine relationship hesitates between cooperation and competition.”
