New towns and new signposts
Incessant creation, imbuing soul into objects, all for what? To challenge the status quo, to disturb the stagnant waters of our collective thinking. Take for example my 23 km/h speed limit signs. Strange, isn’t it? But why would 50 or 30 be sacrosanct numbers? My approach is to reevaluate these seemingly harmless facts that structure our daily lives.
And what about my imaginary cities which exist while not existing? They are there to challenge our understanding of the real and the unreal, to blur the boundaries between the two. Through these acts of creation, I propose alternative universes, not just as fantasies or escapes, but as viable grounds for thought and action.
These works are not there just to impress. They are challenges to our common sense, incentives to think about different ways of life. Could we live in a city that doesn’t exist? Could we drive at 23 km/h and discover a new sense of mobility? Let’s think about it. Normality is often just a consensual illusion. I offer fragments of worlds where this normality is put to the test, encouraging everyone to ask themselves the question: is it really so crazy? Arsen Eca
