In his ‘Monuments’ series French photographer Mathieu Bernard-Redmond uses existing economical data charts to render artificial “architectural accidents”. “I have been working on this project since 2005. I use financial charts and statistics as basic shapes to produce photographic representations of global economic and ecological concerns. The charts have been modeled using 3D software and are then integrated into my landscape photographs. By turning these curves and sculptural shapes into massive constructions—close to memorials, monumental structures—I intend to reach something beyond data. My purpose is to underline their fundamental link to landscape and thus, to human and natural history,” says Bernard-Reymond.
