Johann is an artist from Montréal who engages with new media. His non-narrative approach links lights and sounds in order to evoke the union between the physical and virtual identities via technological progress. His various digital data corruption techniques are part of the Net-Art and of the video clip to follow the early 2000 European demoscene ideology.
Pratte sees photography as a language that does not seek to return to the real as it is, but which uses the raw material of the visible world to construct from it a metaphoric space, a place where images challenge, respond to each other, and eventually form a new reality, a reality that is magnified to the point of infinity. Or truth. Each series that is created is an invitation on a journey, a voyage into an invented world, constructed from fragments of the reality around us. In the series On Marché sur la Lune, the city seems to have ceased to exist. It is nothing but a heap of rubble, traces, remains, stigmata of a time lost. There is nothing left but a lunar landscape reminiscent of the end of the world.
