I don’t think you realise what I’m talking about


The title of the artwork refers to the idea of complexity, and to the attitude to refuse it. I thought about Edgar Morin’’s philosophy. I thought about his idea on the disorganisation of the three terms “individual”, “society”, and “species”, and the necessity to reorganise this relationship. I downloaded a picture representing the idea of “nature” from a public domain stock photos website. I used this picture, uploaded from a user (representing the term “individual”) to talk about nature. I chose one with a plant and a bird (representing the term “species”). I wrote the words “individual”, “society”, and “species” on the image. I changed the size of this image. I published this image on the Internet (representig the term “society”). The image exceeds any screen sizes. You can’t see it unless you drag and scroll it in two directions. This image suggests that nature exceeds humans machines, although it exists inside humans machines. It is only a matter of discovering it, as the complexity that is represented by the text (“individual/society/species”) that you could find exploring the image.
