The Origin of Destruction by grelin-machin The Origin of Destruction by grelin-machin
Last August, I was invited by :iconj3concepts: to take part at DepthCore, an international digital art and design collective. Every 4-5 months, we release works around one theme.

This is my first entry on the theme of primal (beastly, origin…)
The first thought I have for primal, instinct and beastly is violence, destruction. I’m very inspired by the book The Lucifer Principle where Howard K. Bloom explain why human self-destruct: ”Nature has made that form of tragedy a basic law of her universe. She presents her children with a choice between death and death. She offers a carnivore the options of dying by starvation or killing for a meal.” ”Why all this savagery? A lot of it springs from a simple biological commandment: be fruitful and multiply.” My piece is about genes fighting against others genes to have the privilege to procreate and destroy competition.

You can see all works here

Well... yeah! I'm easily disturbed by internet when I work so I guess it gives me some breaks! And I love to work on different things at the same time so...
