LA CARTE OU LE TERRITOIRE - STÉPHANIE VILAYPHIOU

As part of "Print error / publishing in the digital age"

From 23 October 2012 to 07 April 2014

Jeu de Paume Online

La carte ou le territoire by Stéphanie Vilayphiou is part of the exhibition “Print error / publishing in the digital age” proposed by Alessandro Ludovico, for the Jeu de Paume virtual space.

Stéphanie Vilayphiou is a young artist and designer investigating how software (transparently developed) can deeply question the fixity of the printed page and the whole defensive copyright practices historically consolidated.
In « The map or the territory » she selected a controversial book, Michel Houellebecq’s « The map and the territory », which became renown for its evident quotes from Wikipedia, non-acknowledged by the author nor by the publisher. She took the book’s digitized text and wrote a software filter, which looks for each sentence (or part of it) in Google Books, finding the same sequences of words in other books. Visually the book transforms then in a digital collage of quotations (whose context is maintained in the background), loosing even the last bit of originality.
Vilayphiou embodies her sharp irony within a functional mechanism, exploiting Google’s industrial collection of texts and smartly expanding the mediating properties of language through the networks.
