The Eighth Sphere, 2016, poster
The French artists Léonore Bonaccini and Xavier Fourt together form Bureau d’Etudes. Bureau d’Etudes has been working for years on producing critical cartographies of contemporary political, social and economic systems. With these maps, they make previously unthought of connections by placing certain developments in a broader or different perspective. In The Eighth Sphere they represent the global online network of users and computers as an early version of a global nervous system. A nervous system consisting of machines operating together as a gigantic independent network.
