Louis-Paul Caron

Louis Paul Caron is a digital artist and award winning director living in Paris. His digital artworks combine futuristic characters with deep cinematic atmospheres, and all share the common goal of telling stories: animated films, scenarios, CGI portraits or digital frescoes. The themes at the heart of his projects are ecology, technology and possible futures, Louis Paul Caron offering a‘digital native’ vision of the future.

Are Louis-Paul Caron's characters dead, did they faint, are they asleep? It's as if they were boneless, as if they could be picked up between the thumb and forefinger, like a handkerchief, and placed somewhere else... but where? The stifling heat that overwhelms them, that of a burning world nearing its end, has finally dried them out of all meaning. These beings no longer function, and we wonder if they're even human, as their bodies look more like mannequins on display in store windows. Pompeian casts. Where is this soulless world of Louis-Paul Caron's going? Is there someone behind this imaginary camera, filming them with no palpable point of view, a bit like a drone relentlessly pursuing its perfectly calculated upward trajectory until its propellers burn out... Who makes sense of it all? Is there a sentient being left on this earth?

In Citius Altius Fortius ("Faster, Higher, Stronger"), Louis-Paul Caron condemns the impact major sporting events have on the environment. He sees the splendor with which we build for the Olympic Games as a harbinger of the decline of our civilization, like that of the ancient worlds.
