Visual Contagions. Images in Globalization.
An exhibition of Jeu de Paume's online creation space.
Memes are viral images from popular culture using a humour tone to illustrate a feeling or situation. They are made by anybody and adressed to everbody.
These pictures are seen, dowloaded, sent, saved, modified by millions of internet users, linking them all by relating and identifying to some kind of universal experiences.
Through « you and meme », I’m inviting the users to actively take part in this spreading process by making their own memes using their faces to match a quote. The generated images are then automatically posted on twitter, ready to be seen , shared and maybe to go viral..
