 Le Poids des Images
Mixed-media: a weight, string, spring  
Format10 x 15 cm, 3 m, 3.2 kg  
2011  

I glued 823 photographs of the scientific archive International Affective Picture System IAPS together and created a mobile swinging weight. The pictures were printed in the family album format 10 x 15 cm. Nan Goldin self portrait "female battered" appears on the top.


This international reference in Neuroscience is used in a very strict scientific protocol. For instance, the pictures are projected for a view seconds in the MRI scanner or in the EEG cabine in a defined frame. Every photograph comes with standardized values on three levels: pleasure, arousal and dominance.
