Mechanized painted plywood frame, crushed slate stone dust with water.
The french word for "computer", "ordinateur", was coined by the philologist Jacques Perret at IBM's request in 1955. Stemming from the Latin 'ordinat', meaning 'order', the term bridges to theology as the latin term 'ordinator' can be found referring to god, the great organizer, Deus Ordinator.
Sedimentation is an autonomous mechanized installation that slowly transports water and dust from one side to another. Presented as part of my bachelor graduation show titled Deus Ordinator at Beaux Arts de Paris that questionned the technological gaze on natural phenomenons as a potential new ground for spirituality, this installation stems form my longlasting CGI practice, more specifically 3D physics simulations.
Acting as a sort of real time sandbox simulator, the machines slowly highlights over time the mundanity of water sedimentation. With each passing, the water creates creases and paths through the fine dust, patiently showing us the inner workings of the natural shapes of the world.
