Antonin Ricou – Radical Culture
Like an archaeology dig where traces are understood through comparison and classification, the Radical Culture project aims to be the fruit of a process of digital archaeology.
Resulting from a reflection mixing anthropology and contemporary technology, the project questions the imperious and timeless need of human beings to represent themselves. From this phenomenon arises a need for exhaustive knowledge, a modern fantasy leading to the crystallisation of human culture.
Today, the controversial platform Wikipedia advocates universality and free access through its open source and multilingual function. It thus becomes a relevant tool to tell and decipher human culture and the actors of its representation.
