Gregory Chatonsky

Since the mid-1990s, Gregory Chatonsky has been working on the Web and mainly on his affectivity, leading him to question the identity and new narratives that emerge from the network. From 2001, he began a long series on dislocation, aesthetics of the ruins and extinction as an artificial and natural phenomenon. Over the years, he has turned to the ability of machines to produce results that resemble a human creation in an almost autonomous way. These issues have become convergent thanks to the “artificial imagination” that uses the data accumulated on the Web as learning material to produce a similarity. In the context of a probable extinction of the human species, the network appears as a desperate attempt to create a monument in anticipation that would continue after our disappearance.
