The infratextes

Installation - Network printing adhesive floor - 2010

A journey through discreet signs warning of a pretext to say underneath the surface. Aphorisms for the background, road to the form, rhythmic for the space, horizontal for the plane, adhesives for the floor. Arranged in the maze of Carré Amelot, the infratext are an invitation to cross the threshold of the exhibition.

This multiple piece is a materialization of web project fuites d'infratextes et was created for the exhibition intervalles2. It has been purchased by Carré Amelot in La Rochelle.

Derived from the constraints Oulipian, The infratextes meet the requirements of both graphics and text. They are composed in a common style: entrance city road signs. Furthermore, the use of abbreviations s/ (over) or s/s (under) articulates their density between two levels.
These awards create a network of nodes and semantic graphs that engage the visitor in its movement within the building. Prepared the ground in the maze of Carré Amelot, the infratextes are an invitation to cross the threshold of exhibition.
