FLATLINE
July 2010, Digital Print, in Perceptive Landscapes exhibition.





I tried to use a single element of our memory in the simplest way to define a landscape. For FLATLINE, landscape is defined only with a line, it exists with as little information as possible: the difference of color. For the videos ISOSHORE 255 and photographies ISOSHORE 13, which are not real pictures and not yet real videos, I tried to determine the light source. In the unconscious, everyone knows where is the light source in an environment (the same for a picture), but without this knowledge, supposition of course, nothing allows us to say where is the source of light. Everything is material, the sky is as solid, structured and colorful as the sea, its reflections, or any other element in the photo. Thanks to the process of decomposition I used, it became possible to group elements according to their proximity to the light source. The whiter the line is, the closer the light source is, and vice versa if the line is black. The most recognizable images because of their not so abstract compositions are ISOSHORE 255 SEASCAPE and ISOSHORE 255 DYKE. We understand this process better on the two videos of ISOSHORE 13, which recovers the inherent movement we usually see on a landscape, even if it seems not to move: the surf of the sea, the trees in the wind, the clouds in the sky and so on.
