video, photography and archives he explores the new technologies, the artificial intelligence and questions the notions of progress and civilization.
Research in genetics now makes it possible to create more resistant hybrid varieties with many oenological qualities. In parallel, the increasing use of spreading drones or cutting robots has a direct impact on winegrowers’ daily activities and on this highly traditional trade. Inspired by these tech
nological evolutions, the Artiﬁcialisation du terroir series, presented in the Confrérie des Vignerons, explored what lays behind the scenes of the trade and the challenging future of viticulture.
Between 2017 and 2018, a team of sociologists from the CIC identified, located and documented the 800 or so religious and spiritual communities established in this territory. A class of Bachelor Photography, under the direction of professor and photographer Matthieu Gafsou, traveled through the Canto
n to meet around twenty of them. Their work gives for the first time an overview of the diversity of beliefs in the region.
Both physical and digital strategies have been developed for the field work in Arles: from wild posting, to live webcam, from propaganda to social networks.

d work space. This project between installation and caricature, aims to augment our relationship to our society of spectacle, where the speed of dissemination of information sometimes makes the true and false indistinguishable.
