Reality is becoming increasingly opaque and could be seen as permanent fiction.
Marguerite Humeau is on a quest to explore contemporary myths: the grey and unknown areas of our reality.
Design is used to explore the means by which knowledge is generated in the absence of evidence, or in the impossibility of either reaching or analysing the object of investigation.
Humeau weaves factual events into speculative narratives, therefore enabling the unknown to erupt in grandiose splendour. The work is presented as a series of live science fictions: semi-real, synthetic, supernatural events.
It has been recognised internationally through various awards and publications such as TAR, I-D, Blueprint, Monocle, WMMNA, BLDGBLOG, Azure, Design Week, NPR, France Cul
