My name is Victoire and I am a French Artist using Photography. In my practice I'm confronting technics from different area such as analog and old photographic technic with new technology.
I'm also interested in how Photography can trigger a memory.
I like using the photographic medium as an experimental field. And I would love to tell you more about this fantastic medium.
The initial idea was to make images without a camera. Then I thought about the litophane: eighteenth century technique that produces bas-relief images on porcelain with a back-lighting system.
I decided to adapt this technique to the 3D printer. Therefore, I create a sample to test the item's transparency (a small target, 4 levels of thickness). Then, I put the item in the enlarger, instead of putting negatives into it. While I was testing the item I found a singular interest for the thread it produced, once enlarged.
I would love to guide you through this experimental project I made & for which I have spent a year into a dark room!
