- On the highway
For Bernard Lassus, the highway is a kinetic work in which « the perceived objects develop a ballet of contradictory movements, in the foreground twirling, slowly sliding to the horizon ». In my opinion, rather than a kinetic ballet, this movement transforms the cars into a gigantic camera, like aligned drones, locked in their trajectory on automatic pilot.
This camera converts the landscape of the surroundings into a landscape incessantly in movement, the prohibited stop becomes a fault of pictorial taste in an attempt to reach a horizon, inaccessible star.
The highway, like a sword, cuts the landscape. The road is integrated into the landscape, it runs through its traces and its volutes to reveal its meanders. The highway is the wound of « efficiency » which emerges, which tears the landscape.
Humans have an appetite for the most fertile land and that is normal, I was going to say, it is human. Highways and their infrastructures : gas stations, and soon electric power station, storage of maintenance materials, police stations, toll areas devour arable land.
It is only a question of managing proximity and the shortest distance between producer and consumer. Humans cannibalize agricultural land, infrastructures such as Roissy airport, Garonor  warehouses,... are the demonstration of this insatiable appetite.
