Paul GUILBERT. 2012. Video + sound (stereo). 14mn45s. French/English. Single Channel.

" no grain, no pearl " is a video project started inside the research group " Digital Art Conservation " in partnership with the ZKM (Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe) between 2010 and 2012.
" DAC " was focusing on the sustainability of digital art pieces : " no grain, no pearl " is a response organized as the partition of a virtual lecture.
Utterances are melting, such as an helical digestion submitted to the audience's attention.
Based on the idea according to which what has been said is less important than what has been memorized, and what has been raised is surrendering in front of what has been assimilated, to deal with
the conservation of a digital utterance leads to reveal the communication strategy against this video is warning about :

" The catachresis is the assimilation of a trope (metaphor, metonymy, synechdoche...) into the " everyday language ". It reveals the symptom of linguistic obsolescence by the trivialization. "
The utterance admits its submission to this kind of sustainability.
