2016 — 2019




Thierry Verbeeck creates an ephemeral work « insitu » on windows in public space.

Indeed, glass represents several characteristics of the post-Internet society such as transparency and the immaterial.

The artist paste many stickers on the windows. Between each collage, a photo is taken. With these photos the artist to create an animated gif. This animated gif enhances the "IRL" architecture with interactions specific to digital architectures. 

Because the first intention is to materialise the URL world, the final part of the work is an other objet. Thierry Verbeeck create somes lenticulars print and try to gives to this “physical image” certain features of digital imaging.
