«In Memory of Me – toward a new gestures directory » is a statuary work, which brings classical sculpture and high-end digital technologies together, highlights a new gesture directory born from the practice of selfies, new universal rituals associated to our digital societies. The gestures linked to selfies are without precedent nor equivalent in the whole history of mankind, and they address the topics of a new form of universal non-verbal communication, its relationship with Antiquity, our needs for myths, games and theatricality, as well as the power and place images occupy in our contemporary societies. Relationship with time and memory are also at the core of my project.
