2018 Silex is a series using a very special shape.
The shape is printed from a 3d scan of a Silex from the human stone age era (see picture ), worked in order to extract pure ligne of the primitive tool, with design software. The assemblage is made on gesso frame with concrete effect on it, and use powder and special colors like Stuart Stemple BLACK 2.0 .
The statement of this series is a travel inside history of art beginning in grotto to the actual technology era by using 3D printing technics and computer throught scan and 3D sotware. Art is a story following the technics use and dicovered by human during all time and historical events, the time travel throught this different technics help to feel the huge never ending progress of technologie synchronised with civilisation. The intention is included in a large process of crossmedia installation about civilisation, always in progress since 5 years, including videoart, drawings and sculpture.
Specially for collectors a small series of 16X12 cm on cotton paper with a 3d printing assemblage have been create, each pieces are unique and signed by the artist on back.
The Stone Age was a broad prehistoric period during which stone was widely used to make implements with an edge, a point, or a percussion surface. The period lasted roughly 3.4 million years and ended between 8700 BCE and 2000 BCE with the advent of metalworking. Stone Age artifacts include tools used by modern humans and by their predecessor species in the genus Homo, and possibly by the earlier partly contemporaneous genera Australopithecus and Paranthropus. Bone tools were used during this period as well but are rarely preserved in the archaeological record. The Stone Age is further subdivided by the types of stone tools in use. The Stone Age is the first period in the three-age system of archaeology, which divides human technological prehistory into three periods: The Stone Age The Bronze Age The Iron Age (wikipedia)
