Muriel Leray – rest, reset,

“These absences also mark fractures between the frescoes and the virtual monastery. Noise is out of reach for frescoes; they cannot quite reach our ears. But more importantly we are confronted with two different qualities of silence. A specialized silence, temporalized, which arises in the monastery by successive surprises, with the silence caused by an interruption; and a timeless silence in frescoes, related to the capacity of abstraction in spoken languages, here suggesting a kind of noble poverty in virtual worlds: money is not entangled with existence for our avatar and his/her world (“and nothing of value was lost” would make us aware of this fact).”
Extract from the press release “rest, reset,”, by Jérôme Guitton
