Maxime Martins: Ubikutopia
Maxime Martins is a visual artist and filmmaker. His film, photography and video work use the language of cinematography to question the temporality of images. As he works on contemporary utopias, he is fascinated by the subconscious mechanisms layered in urbanistic and cinematographic dreams. In his works time is suspended in order to reveal the phenomenon at stake in urban spaces. A character goes back on the technological utopia of the early XXIst century through the creation in 2015 of the city of Songdo in South Korea. The first smart, ubiquitous city.
