The project ID Palette investigates the question of identity according to its territory, its constituent spaces as multiple as moving. The issue is a sensitive reappropriation of my administrative identity by an artistic manipulation and translation of the textual and numeral data which are registered and fixed on my ID document, to open up possibles. Its first form is a series of digital compositions ID Palette (2016/2017). Its second form presents a digital sound video MeUs (2017/2018).
Series of compositions (2016/2017)
50 digital color compositions (7,4x10,5cm) / Digital print on matte paper (300g)
The series ID Palette is created from an artistic protocol which is based on an extraction and a translation of my ID document's personal data in color codes, according to a series of mathematical rules. This protocol leads to the formation of my own ID palette which contains twenty-five colors. With these, I compose to signify the plurality and the infinity of identity in its forms and its spaces. The serial form supports this dimension of multiplicity, a serial both mutable and unlimited in number of editions for a dynamic character and a desacralized material support.
Digital color video (HD 1920x1080), stereo sound (0.06.34)
The video MeUs is created from an artistic protocol which combines processes of extraction and translation of my ID document's personal data in color codes with a process of colors's conversion into sounds. According to a series of mathematical rules, this protocol leads to the formation of my own ID palette which contains twenty-five colors and, for each, its sound correspondence.
This video shows the constuction of eight consecutive visual and sound compositions in a surfaces game, with the inscription then the persistence of my palette's data. Different appearences and tonalities emerge step by step, in resonance with the structural dimension and the changing nature of identity.
