Programme

Veille infinie

Donatien Aubert proposes at 3 bis f an immersive installation with video-projections and virtual reality experience based on a work on hyperconnection and the underlying injunction, through screens or connected devices, to be reachable and available all the time. Whether these new addictions are expressed in the private or professional sphere, they come to nibble away at these "unproductive" yet precious spaces that are our nights. Thus, in 2017, the CEO of Netflix announced that the platform's biggest competitor was sleep.

In his different projects, whether he deals with botany, cybernetics, mathematics and crystals or memory related to traumas, Donatien takes a look at technical developments and their impact on our lives as well as on our world.
