Start 'being human' Most of my work is included in this site. It's a big interlinked universe that concentrates on the possibilities and limitations of communication on the net. So most works with a special entrance will automatically lead you to the other works.
The site is based on the idea that the internet is an artistic medium that permits addressing people in their own intimacy, non-mediated by an art context. The work treats about questions of identity and discovering the other in his differences. The pieces invite visitors to express wishes, to get rid of pains, to receive comfort, to reflect on understanding, respect and his/her relation to the machine.
I am exploring the new identity and relational territories established on the net. By creating scene dialogue and emotional situations, "Being Human" leads the net surfer to wonder about the various communication rites which reveal and draw each of us into a new cartography of our contemporary being.

Presentation "I would like" in !R . UZ , The ministry of Culture and Education of Republic of Uzbekistan.

'meeting place' My first experience with the net.
The site was related to the exposition with the same title in the 'Hollandsche Spoorweg' inNijmegen, Pays Bas. It was a way to be present in the exposition place in Holland while being physically in the south of France. One of the elements of the site showed a rather traditional overview of my installation work in the past.
