“The aura of engraving has always attracted me even beyond its exercise. Engraving has acquired a sacred format due to its development coinciding with printing and its worldwide best-sellers ( the bible, the dictionnary, scientifical or historical publications). On the other hand, television, a more popular and modern image broadcasting medium is at the opposite of the latter. Hence the idea of confronting these two practices in order to bring about hybrid images where the social and artistic codes are interwoven.”
