What happens when our forgotten urban waste resurfaces? Presented as a “photographic inventory of the invisible”, Lia Giraud’s Photosynthesis project focuses on the thousands of objects fished out of the port of Marseille between 2016 and 2020 by the association MerTerre.
The installation consists of a tubular structure that houses six bioreactors in which micro-algae cultures develop day after day.
The projected film shows the processual revelation of these objects/images through a process called algaeography. These micro-algae, usually used as a marker of pollution, replace the photographic silver grain to reveal an image that has become alive.
