Raphaël Dallaporta, 'Correspondance (after N. Niépce, La table servie, 1822-1833?)' (2015)

From the 1820's, Louis Daguerre and Nicéphore Niépce, two inventors of photography, started a correspondance about their discoveries using an encrypted language based on numbers. Raphaël Dallaporta used a digitalized file of 'La Table servie', a lost photography by Nicéphore Niépce, and implemented the secret numbers within the file code.

Mural pigment print 250x905 cm (dimensions variable), two framed prints 60x20 am and 36x23 cm each.

An installation presented during the Foam Fusion festival, June 9 - 11, 2017, at Foam Amsterdam.
