Vue des collections permanentes - MAMAC, Nice.This post is composed of two parts:

The first one deals with the effects and influences of the image on the representation of ourselves. The theoretical part introduces Donald Woods Winicott, an English psychiatrist, who gives definitions about the construction and development of our “Self” (French translation is “notre Moi”). How can the online life modify our representation of ourselves?
I also introduce Sherry Turkle, an American psychologist and current director of the MIT Initiative on Technology and Self. This center of research and reflection evolves connections between people and artifacts which come out in her analysis of the “subjective side” of people’s relationships with technology, especially computers.
The second part is my interview with Marianna Hovhannisyan, a young curator, concerning her personal research on the process of archiving. Her enquiry towards this topic has so far produced two interviews that are online, part of a planned sequence presenting the archives in relation with practices in the field of art.
