Le monde comme entrepôt de livraison

In the rooms at the Musée de la Mine, Stéphane Degoutin and Gwenola Wagon project videos of excerpts from their recent films. In automated warehouses, robots move items around huge sheds. They move quickly from one shelf to another and cluster like bees in a hive made up of rectangular cells. The system of accessing the objects is similar to the way we access data in data centers. All the data centers and goods warehouses in the world form an immense stock that enables us to access people, information and objects. The storage architecture can be seen as a general principle of social organisation, in a world designed like a huge delivery warehouse. In many respects, the architecture of the contemporary world is veering towards the IT meaning of the word "architecture": an aspecific, continuous, homogenised and indifferent space, whose operations are optimised by algorithms.
