Why Bother With Reality? – Eve Sculpture by Parse/Error
This ultra-limited series of sculptures printed in 3D, then painted and varnished, is a new facet of the Why Bother With Reality? project. From ancient statues, 3D scanned, then reworked, this series reveals an anachronistic path, as technical as aesthetic, blurring the lines between the ancient and modern myths. This series focuses on our ability to lose ourselves in a sea of screens, where truths are drowned in an overdose of fake news and entertainment. We built a border between the reality of the world and what we are willing to perceive, we lost ourselves in an infinity of alternate realities. A reflection on the human interactions in the age of social media, through the way we see ourselves, but also the way we reveal ourselves to others.
Parse/Error – Working under the pseudonym Parse/Error, Fabien Bouchard is a French artist based in Marseille. Self-taught, his work is born from the encounter between art, design and technology, and focused on the interaction between human and nature, in a world invaded by the digital and the new uses of communication. With a scientific and IT background, he’s using new technologies and science to question modern issues in various ways, on the border of several creative universes. His artistic practice mixes openly 3D printing, connected objects, wood, street art, electronics, light or real-time data.
