#DÉFILÉ is a large format audiovisual installation featuring a structure in the form of an Internet browser suspended against a building. Its first public presentation was held during Signal festival of digital arts in Prague, Czech Republic, in October 2013.
An evolving installation, #DÉFILÉ is part of a group of works in progress that depicts the state of flux in which the arrival of the internet has immersed us, resulting in major changes in our relationship to reading text, as well as our ways of communicating, reflecting and presenting ourselves socially.
#DÉFILÉ begins with a preface in the form of text, read by a digital voice as it appears on screen, and takes on a visual progression through the giant web browser and building, which are used to support the projection. Following the logic of an essay that is visual rather than written, the video that recreates the installation returns to this technique of digital collage used abundantly in #DÉFILÉ, creating a hybrid object that is both a documentation of the installation in situ and a film in itself.
