Visual arts installation that proposes an offline and analog approach of an online and digital topic. La caverne is also part of an ongoing research on web semantics, both visual and textual. Could the internet-related technical terms, which appeared in the early 2000s and which are now in the vernacular of our time be used in a poetic way? La caverne proposes to the audience a simple yet meditative experience by taking the online offline, an opportunity to think about our daily digital and connected practices.
