Distinction: an artistic series about man and machine
If machines reproduce things at will and identically, humans reproduce things with a certain inaccuracy that characterises them. This human inaccuracy is due to several factors: our natural trembling, our changes of position or our mood when drawing. The repetition of the same gesture, especially in an industrial environment, leads to fatigue, tendon and muscle aches, which are typically human and which a machine does not feel. Pushing our bodies to their limits affects our ability to draw accurately.
I use our human imprecision to differentiate ourselves from machines, automation and artificial intelligence. It's a cry for identity: "We are human and this is how we draw!"
The repetition of patterns (hundreds of lines and thousands of dots) creates tiny deviations that add up to graphic variations that express our humanity. These forms, these gradations that appear in my drawings are the pure fruit of human imprecision and do not depend on any preconceived artistic choice.
