Contagious Spaces is the first ever monograph by Emmanuelle Lainé. Designed as an extension of the artist’s work—known for scrambling the reading tracks through the entanglement of several media within immersive installations—this digital platform in constant evolution plunges the viewer into the production process on display in her œuvre.
A geographical map informing of the current position of the web visitor leaves place— in only a few clics—to a series of images and texts, then to large-scale images of high resolution quality. The latters, once stuck to the exhibition wall or used as communication image before the public opening, are here offered true to scale as a canvas in the web. Emmanuelle Lainé keeps on creating, this time through the publication object, a complex cognitive space where several times exist simultaneously and resolve themselves in the (web) visitor’s point of view.
