Rollercoaster landscapes

Pencil on paper, screentone, 2014.

Youtube.com lets me test the physical sensations of a motionless trip: screenshots become souvenirs of rollercoaster journeys made from my chair. The series of drawings Rollercoaster landscapes lets the viewer contemplate these jumbled spaces that have been traversed at full speed. Executed in gray, red, green and blue pencil and covered with thin dotted lines screentones, the graphic processing of these drawings recalls both the digital (RGB) and printed image.

(fr) Youtube me permet de tester les sensations physiques d’un voyage immobile : les captures d’écran deviennent les photos-souvenirs de ces trajets de montagnes russes effectués depuis mon fauteuil. La série de dessins Rollercoaster landscapes permet la contemplation de ces espaces renversés, traversés à toute allure. Réalisés aux crayons gris, rouge, vert et bleu et recouvert d’une fine trame pointillée, le traitement graphique de ces dessins rappelle à la fois l’image numérique (RVB) et l’image imprimée.
