Dear Friends,

Enjoy there my project "5G" with IDO Company's 3D printer:

While the sixth Guggenheim Museum was under construction in Mexico, in
2006, I captured data on the five existing Guggenheims. The traces of
this very real course provide an echo of a possible virtual construction
of a museum on a planetary scale, of which the Guggenheims are the
symbol. The shift from a fluid architecture of the virtual to a reality
of the constructed form takes shape in the final stage of my project in
Paris, involving a 3D video animation created by Brian Bey, and a resin
model, from 3D prototyping, in collaboration with the IDO company, that
is based on the elements I brought together.

This 5G is composed of a photo, in conjunction with GPS coordinates
showing the exact position of the images taken in front of the 5
Guggenheims in Berlin in June, Bilbao in July, New York and Las Vegas in
August, and Venice in September. 5G thus defines itself as the outline
for a performance-installation networking several sites on a global
scale. A unique moment that is in symbiosis with the projected entity
involving more than a hundred Guggenheims all over the world that is now
being studied.

This project has already outlined the infinite scope for feasible
artistic achievement in terms of the distribution and exchange of
tomorrow's works of art, in the all-digital age. But it is also a
tribute to the will of one woman, Peggy Guggenheim, that is directed
towards artistic creation -- a woman who was cursed in the 20th century
and is more than acknowledged today. For the transmutation of living
forms involves an endless movement, and it is only this current epoch of
ours that has established the bounds to be crossed.

You could find one picture/video/text on my Facebook group "remixarts".
Don't hesitate if you would presentate my project in your exhibition!!!!!!!!

Best regards,

PS: "5G" was presented in my installation/projection "5/5" in 2007 at
SIANA France
