“We define ourselves as photographers even when we’re working with 3D materials,” say Paris-based duo Benjamin Roulet and François Bellabas. “Everything comes from photography.”
“You cannot touch the exposed pieces, but nobody told me not to use them as emitters.”

Vito Acconci, Virtual Intelligence Mask, 1993
“A conventional fencing mask is used as a support-structure-for electronics; the electronics are used as contact with the world outside.
On the front of the mask are three televisions: one larger television facing out, and two miniature televisions facing in. The miniature televisions, facing in, cover the eyes of the person wearing the mask; from an outsider’s point of view, the person inside the mask is blindfolded by the two televisions. At one side of the mask is a small portable radio, positioned at the ear of the person wearing the mask; the radio’s speaker is directed out.
On top of the mask are two surveillance cameras, one on top of the other, one directed toward the front and one directed toward the rear. The cameras mechanically rotate, side to side.
The person wearing the mask sees his/her environment on the two television screens in front of his/her eyes: one—screen shows what’s going on in front of the person, the other shows what’s going on behind.
In the meantime, the larger television, and the radio, are available for use by passers-by: a passer-by can switch TV channels, a passer-by can change from one radio station to another. A passer-by can, literally, ‹dial› the person wearing the mask; a passer-by can, literally, ‹turn the person on.›”
A pilot study from a group of Dutch scientists implies that being told that an image is an artwork automatically changes our response, both on a neural and behavioural level.
MATERIAL WANT is the first collaboration of Matthew Plummer-Fernandez and JODI. Bringing together their respective practices, they explore hybridisations of algorithms, errors, Internet found objects and digital fabrication. The result of this joint effort? A series of 3D-printed sculptures, uncanny, yet familiar objects, between incongruous assemblages and distorted reality.

The power of language can both separate us and bring us together. This piece, which is based on Joseph Kosuth‘s masterpiece Three and One chairs from 1965, playfully capitalizes on linguistic similarities while highlighting cultural absurdities bringing about the question: could a pop icon, place to rest and a single noun have anything in common/share common ground? In this work the intended act of misinterpretation becomes the actual act of artistic creation.
