"It was curious to think that the sky was the same for everybody, in Eurasia or Eastasia as well as here. And the people under the sky were also very much the same—everywhere, all over the world, hundreds or thousands of millions of people just like this, […]." 1984, George Orwell

................................... 

Insistent and persistent presence of a sky. Skies that are different and the same for each of us. Multiple skies, multiples of skies.

CIELS (#01) is the first work of the ongoing series Transmissions. This first work is composed of images taken from the Web and relates here recurring skies from our daily lives shared on social networks. Transmitted images, hung up on a few tags, but which blend into the landscape of the web and get lost in the abundance of the Internet.

CIELS is a landscape composed of lines of pixels from several images from the Web. This approach is inspired by the first remote image transmissions of the Belinographer who reads and transmits images line by line.

It relates a multiple presence, traces of a moment for each of us, skies that have become a sky, the same for all of us.
