ABOUT HER COLLECTION FOR ARTJAWS : “PHYSICALITY OF THE INTERNET”

This selection of works is focused on the work of Sophie Deltombe, an artist whose practice questions the internet, its aesthetics, language and codes. By appropriating the vocabulary, mechanisms and modus operandi of the Internet culture, she discloses her daily relationship with connected objects. Her work tackles the issue of hybridization between the physics and the virtual and the dissolution of boundaries between the private, public, professional and commercial spheres. Her Internet-derived objects express the speed with which images and data are constantly reconfigured, modified, dispersed or eliminated. By printing traces of the online activity on objects, the artist makes them physically exist in space. By taking them out of their digital comfort it gives them materiality. The impressions of clicks, emotions, exchanges and printed purchases in the browser window also challenge us on the commercial use of data and the monetization of our emotions.
