In co-production with Nuit Blanche Bruxelles / With the support of BELGA and iMAL (Center for Digital Cultures & Technology, Bruxelles) / Homeopape benefited from support by the FWB (Fédération Wallonie Bruxelles)
Homeopape is an installation that is nourished by the flow of dispatches from press agencies . Two storage racks are set across from one another in the space. Each of these racks contains 20 desktop printers, in rows of 4. Underneath them are placed 4 ventilators. For each dispatch issued in real time by the press agency, all the 20 desktop printers of a rack will synchronize and print a whole dispatch on a surface of 84cm x 148,5cm, divided in 20 A4 paper sheets. Both printer sets (one for each rack) print dispatches one after the other. Once a dispatch is printed (and that it becomes completely legible for the visitor), the printers eject the paper sheets, which are scattered in the exhibition space by the ventilators.
