In his work, presented at Xpo Gallery in Paris, Aram Bartholl, creates interactions between the Internet, culture and reality. Around the question of how the media influence us, so versatile they can be seen and as evidence of our world. A new model for the study of media, Bartholl not only seeks to know what a man does with the media, but rather that the media are the man.

The heart of his work is primarily derived from the tension between public and private, offline and online craze for technology and everyday life. Whether interventions or public facilities, Bartholl seeks again to measure the share of the digital world in the present reality, and what device it is there.

Our minds are constantly invaded by the hidden code, videos or three-dimensional spaces in screens that scroll without limit, while a significant portion is not accessible to us. The trouble remembering what link was opened last week is ignored by the calm and hypnotic our screen appearance. And it awakens in us a smile. Retweet this now!
