Combining the oldest method of image reproduction with the most contemporary technologies, Discursive Mechanics offers a period of suspension between two eras, that of Gutenberg and that of Big Data. Based on the principle of a chain reaction, these creations stage dreamlike and poetic machineries, sometimes serious and sometimes joyful, which develop on the walls in the manner of an exquisite corpse.
