GHOST NOTES / Alexandre LePetit

Ghost Notes

Installation

What is the capacity of agency of a disembodied idea, offered up to the subjectivity of our gaze?

Between physical absence and immaterial presence, the traces of its journey form the shape of our world.

“The Thing is neither dead nor alive, it is dead and alive at the same time.

It survives. At once cunning, inventive, and machine-like, ingenious and unpredictable, this war machine is a theatrical machine, a mekhane.

What one has just seen across the stage is an apparition, a quasi-divinity fallen from the sky or come out of the earth.”

– Derrida in Spectres of Marx

The cabinet (mouse-trap)
