Through the recontextualization of various archival elements, Thibault Le Texier offers a critical study on the issues of meaning and veracity in images. By cutting and pasting found footage from institutional movies from the mid-20th century, he provides an eerie glimpse into how our past can inform our future where we may be consumed by our rampant technological development.
Thibault Le Texier received a PhD in economics and is currently a researcher at the University of Nice where he focuses on the ideological and institutional constraints that shape our mind and body. He has recently published Le Maniement des hommes : Essai sur la rationalité managériale. ("Handling Men: An Essay on Managerial Rationale", Victor Gresard, Collectif Jeune Cinéma).
