Biography

«Gauthier Le Rouzic is part of a still emerging lineage of Geek artists without making the apology ctional science of the format. The playful aspect of these pieces allows specta- tors of all ages to identify, remember or project into the future, creating a modern poetry barely exploited in Art.

The object looks at itself, listens, plays and communicates. The history of the objects used creates a contemporary narrative that is interpreted in a life experience of our own. In a deep and pragmatic approach, the pieces of Gauthier Le Rouzic initiate a meeting ma- chine / human to create a dialogue that does not exist. The artist is then forgotten, these machines become literally his word. He communicates with these tools as a magician communicates with these towers. He gives voice to inert objects, is this the hidden desire of Man, that everything around him speaks to him and communicates with them?

If we do not ful ll this dream by starting with our own creations, how can man communi- cate with the world and his natural network.

Questioning the evolution of these machines giving them a second life, so that others after us can never forget what and where the computer revolution started. Involve the network and the communication in a solemn work, lled with a desire to relive to a bygone era, feeling born of a nostalgia that he did not know, while putting a new and optimistic view on the probable relation love that the man will live with digital, here is the work of Gauthier Le Rouzic.»

TypeWriterBot examines the relationship we can have with machines but also the definition of discussion today. In our time, conversation via social networks has become commonplace and completely normal… It is on this that I wanted to focus.
By using a typewriter, we accentuate the embarrassment but also the surprise and thought-process of the users.
