Under Automata, 2016
Single-channel Video, 4min30 loop
Above the Atlantic Ocean, sleepers are manually scanned by the artist along the aisle of a plane during a long-distance flight. Under Automata make the portrait of a contemporary scene using a camera from the video games industry. As an anthropometric tool, this camera shares the same technology as the "Full Body Scan", the surveillance system used at the airport's borders. The bodies and objects are partially re-composed by the software, which gives rise to a cinematographic pan as well as a substance-image vision.
