By associating the tools, experiments, and ethics of early conceptual artists, with those of the participative web’s new knowledge communities, held together with water attempts to link together similar developments from different times in history. The idea is to conceive of a multi-layered and multimedia exhibition that, rather that illustrating virtual reality by borrowing its aesthetic codes, presents works by artists that incarnate new possibilities, statements and views of the world. This exhibition tries to stand aside from the generational acceptation of a new aesthetic; from the hashtag “post-Internet” and from his global interpretation.
This publication is not a catalogue of the exhibition but a real exhibition in a book. The groupshow presents printed works by Art & Language, Gilles Furtwängler, Sébastien Mennet et Lawrence Weiner, several anonymes as well as an essay upon art on post-internet times by Roxane Bovet.

Raphaële Bidault-Waddington & Sylvain Menétrey
A trace of a 2014 conference at Corner College in Zürich, as well as a new creation of texts and images, this publication progresses through spirals and revolutions in an attempt to define the notion of Semiospace. The polysemic concept proliferates and moves through foldings and unfoldings according to a model in permanent expansion, serving as a working methodology and creator of an installation in movement. Its generative dynamic reveals little by little its ambition of a theory of everything, and flows outward into the chaos of the cosmos. Is it about reading the signs of the universe so as to better organize them into fictional models and alternative realities? Or proposing discursive architectures of space in order to travel ever further into the depths of thought?
A different sort of monograph, the semiospace presents the work of the artist Raphaële Bidault-Waddington by proposing a panorama of her three creative laboratories: the Laboratory for Idea Engineering, the Small-Scale Sensory Image Industry, and the Poetic Refinery.
A bilingual French-English publication that also includes a fold-out poster.

collection mimic octopus
The first publication in the collection is “Temps à devenir, à propos de l’histoire du temps,” by Ilya Prigogine. The text is from a conference given at the Musée de la Civilisation in Quebec in 1993, in which the scientist proposes a concept of time that is not a mere variable for measurement, but rather a true dimension of existence whose greatest property would be its irreversibility. For if it does not allow us to correct our errors, it is the most powerful motor by which the universe is capable of developing complex systems, including all the diversity of life. Time is the space in which life and the universe continuously invent the new. Prigogine, a philosopher and winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, investigated these complex systems which serve as the points of departure in his thought.

Friendship is the second publication in the Mimic Octopus collection. Translated from the original German by Nicola Demarchi and Jeremy Ergas, this young adult novel by Franz Kafka was unearthed in Prague and, according to specialists, played a major role in Kafka's work. It not only presents the premises of the author's unfinished novels – The Castle, Amerika, and The Trial – but also forms a conclusion for each of them. Karl Rossmann, Josef K. and K.: could they be three different faces of a single man? Through its construction and by the questions it raises, Friendship undeniably offers new terrain to text interpreters.

FloppyPoppyWidy MATTER is a conceptual, pluridisciplinary and evolving publishing project. Outside of predefined fields, a singular reflection is created in the junctions. FloppyPoppyWidy MATTER attempts to follow these lines of thought. Through an interrogation of imminence and the multitude, combination or chance, the project provokes encounters, allowing for new conceptual links. The connections of ideas are not controlled, different each time, subjected to the singular imagination of the reader. A sort of revisited Zettelkasten that places the reader inside the writing process.
It’s also the creation of a panorama. Mixing authors, artists, philosophers, researchers and scientists – in a given format – to take stock of thought here and now. Attempting to show a reality, to make a collection of ideas that reveal the world. Over time, the contributions grow and the project grows. No subject, style or genre is imposed; the choice of these questions by the author is also revealing of our interests.
