Artist Statement:

    Digital work for 3 DVD et 3 video screens.
    FAUSTECHNOLOGY is a 40 minute music-computer animation work based on a contemporary interpretation of the Faust myth. It evokes human behavior in the face of a machine that generates visual and sound stimuli, a machine that seduces, and produces pleasure. The work is divided into two parts during which a series of visual and aural micro-variations gradually evolve. Faust appears as both entropy and seduction: the threat of increasing disorder in the material world, and seduction as a promise of control through simulation techniques. The sources of the sound and visuals are entirely synthetic.
