Alexine Chanel’s work focuses mainly on the relationship between societal structures and the individual.
For her work “Capsule”, she emulates the aircraft black-box principle of recording everything: from the moment she wakes, she photographs everything around her.
Far from editing the material obtained from this rabid “iconophagia”, she compresses each memory card into very high speed
slide-shows (three frames per image). At this speed, the shots flash at a virtually subliminal rate of exposure, not quite readable individually and yet leaving a definite impression on the viewer as a whole.
The work counterpoints the flood of images exposed on social media through its random profanity and near invisibility via profusion.
