The Marianne Brandt Contest is a non-commercial competition, supporting works that ask: What can we, what should we create these days? Works that aim to explore the potential for poetry and beauty in the sense of an art of living.This is the project we proposed for the Marianne Brandt Contest 2016 in category Photography which thematic was "Material effect". 

What will the monuments and the myths of the future be?  What is today’s artistic and industrial vocabulary, when it comes to manufactured, assembled, and constructed shapes?

The objects we present explore the different forms that are the basis of our industrial world. Made in plaster and treated in full color, sphere, half-sphere, counter-form, square, cylinder and rectangular paver arise as units of the lexicon.
But taken out of context and isolated in perspective, what do these forms say of our time?
The trivial becomes sacred.  The sacred becomes trivial.  Based on the inventory and imagery of this research, we realize that most of the images or fragmentary objects which emerge do not belong strictly to the arts.  Rather, they constitute a sum of clues: each object has its own story, supported by the material as a memory tool.  The fascination that we have for the discovery of old objects corresponds to the dynamic we find in science-fiction.  We project upon them a potential of existence beyond us, a possible past, a possible use, almost erotic in the manner in which the material evokes this past-future without revealing all its mysteries.

Mystery survives our constant desire for clarification, explanation, mapping.  It resists the cleansing and minimalism which governs our Western aesthetic. Mystery is perhaps even more present, silent and opaque at the same time as it becomes less and less figurative.

By exploring the subjective potential of these images, this grouping of objects suggests a fictitious and poetic re-composition of our daily life, in case no other trace were to remain of our civilization.
