Science ? — Fiction !
The design exhibition that Cercle Cité initially planned this year has been rethought in view of the unprecedented current situation linked to the Covid-19 pandemic. This online project, called Design Decameron, offers a convenient alternative, accessible to everyone, everywhere.
Each Thursday, a new creation will be revealed on Cercle Cité's website and social media (Facebook and Instagram). #designdecameron.
The ninth artist to take part in this exhibition is Mich Welfringer, with the project Science ? — Fiction !
"The rapid spread of the virus isolated us, putting aside friendly, tactile or romantic exchanges… until further notice. Scientific diagrams were overabundant in the media. Impossible to ignore or digest them. I do saturate quickly.
Theaters and cinemas close, concerts are canned, no more work…
This is war. The enemy is invisible.
End of transmission.
Best remedy to avoid spinning in a loop ?
Fiction… in a book… or at the movie theater!"
