Prosperity

Prospérité est un dispositif autonome qui manipule les grains de riz. Une pince se déplace d’un support à l’autre, saisissant sur son passage les grains qui ont été placés aléatoirement pour ensuite venir les déposer de façon ordonnée sur un deuxième support. À la suite de ce processus, les grains de riz sont ainsi alignés, mais leur orientation initiale a été conservée.

Prosperity is a stand-alone device that manages grains of rice. A tweezer moves from one surface to the other, gripping on its way the grains which have been placed randomly, and then depositing them in an orderly manner on a second surface. This process leaves the grains aligned while preserving their initial orientation.

The work highlights exchanges between the machine and the matter. The device, being limited by its perceptions, must continuously repeat the sequences of analysis and movement. The grain of rice, symbol of fertility and prosperity, is carefully digitized and memorized to be moved again.
