The space curvature
Within a space of limited size - a museum, an art gallery, it is customary to stand straight, to look straight ahead and to move in a straight line - precisely where our gaze is fixed. Increase the surface area of the space in which you evolve - dive in the heart of nature for example, and you will measure the constant adaptation that the curvature of space imposes on our body, on our mind as well : beachfront, looking straight ahead amounts to gaze the sky, to probe the void in some sort; in mountain areas, remaining constantly right sometimes requires a real balancing act; in all cases, moving in a straight line supposes to marry the local curvature of space, that is, to follow arcs of circles. This size increase is accompanied by the loss of our usual, societal markers. For this reason, men have divided the world into plots whose contours and curvature define the main axis of plowing, sowing and harvesting - i.e., a set of meridians always parallel ...

Text on the back cover : « In their studio nestled in the heart of the Lauragais, between hills and valleys, Karine Gadré and Monique Samson meet their scientific and artistic views of the landscapes they have photographed. At heart, they have criss-crossed the Lauragais area, in the Occitanie region, and created a new artistic language called PhotoGraphism, which offers a renewed vision of our environment: three-dimensional, animated and poetic at the same time. This is followed by the creation of works of art structured in linear networks, modular grids and other undulating deformations, which, we hope, will propel the reader into an imaginary world that is at once luminous, dynamic and aerial, far from the reality photographed, yet everywhere present. »
