Human Circulations

2023, print on polyester, 149x99cm

This work gathers two visual fields: photon calcium imaging of neuronal activity and borders’ surveillance imagery. Together they show internal and external human circulations that can be pictured by networks and flickering dots. Both capture an eerie atmosphere: on hand because these calcium imaging extrapolates real human brain activity and on the other because detection sensing devices are located at long distance from humans crossing borders. Superimposing these human circulations calls for denouncing failures to assist person in danger. The impersonal tone of the text is inspired by European countries behaviour which refuse to shoulder responsibilities regarding deaths at the borders. It is a manifesto.
