When net-art exits the screen, it can be found in a magic box full of surprises…
"Unlike so many others, Systaime does not merely divert the world." He confuses it. His clips are mountains, in a Hank Shocklee way (one of the sound geniuses behind Public Enemy). Mountains and editing. Floods and de-construction. »

Open your Web is the great Systaime showcase. In the shape of real objects, the whole virtual universe of Systaime is finally at hand’s reach. A DVD, a CD, t-shirt, a book, a digital canvas… The surprise box of a web-artist with an insatiable curiosity.
Systaime comes out of the web to meet you and include you, without any pretense, in his reflections on our current media enhanced society. Discover the materialized and rich universe of this digital agitator. With this box, you too can have the "French trash touch". Reconnect to the real. Exit the current standardization.

Systaime, a manipulator of pixels and witness of our times
Born in 1973, Michaël Borras, a.k.a Systaime, lives and works in Paris. He is one of the most iconic representatives of net-art. His specialty is to divert the images of our "society of spectacle" by integrating them into subversive though still entertaining videos mixes. Web creator, video artist and net attitude activist, he experiments with digital technologies with an unquenched drive for discovery. Creator of the "French Trash Touch" movement and member of the “Internationale Echantillonniste” (Intenational Samplist), he is a creative and propagating agent of the alternative artistic Parisian network.
