Laurent Segretier, TNEM - 2013

Duration: 7'40

Segretier is deeply inspired by Japan, which he sees as the driving force of youth culture over the past 30 years. Like many people of his generation, his dreams are born through games and cartoons. One video RBT #04 captures Gundam robots, generally seen to reflect the ideas of modernity and futurism defined in twentieth-century literature and film. Distorted and deconstructed through exploratory manipulative techniques, he constructs an archaeology of these fantastical figures, which he reprocess with the latest imaging technology to recapture them as one might revisit his or her own memory, resulting in a new digital form.
