Siphonophores, 2002
This series is interested in the siphonophore, a relative of the jellyfish, which lives in the depths of the sea and embodies the paradox of being both an organism and a colony, composed of countless individuals, each with a specific function. Inspired by the illustrations of the work Kunstformen der Natur (1904) (Art Forms in Nature) by Ernst Haeckel, a German theoretician on species evolution, Laure Tixier agitates these representations of a utopian organisation by slipping tiny futuristic devices into it: “Such a fusion, confusion between the individual and the group suggests a glimmer of hope for ideal cities of the future. But a closer look reveals that the worm is already in the fruit of this utopia, contaminated by spatial appliances.”
