Relaxation du futur
40mcube coordinates the residency of Benjamin Mouly at the Jean Monnet highschool in Janzé.
The artist has developed with the students of 7 classes a work about images and how they can affect our opinions. From a work of photography and through the use of their phones, notably via applications such as Snapchat, the students were able to create their own images, transforming them into memes, which they were then able to share. In this way, each student reappropriated the other’s images, modifying them and even changing their meaning. Depending on the context, the ideas conveyed by the images were totally changed.
