Etienne Joubert - "Artiste sans tête" (2007)

Born in Boulogne-Billancourt in 1971, lives and works in Paris and Toulouse.
Etienne Joubert has been developing his work on the link between art, origami and new technology since 2005. He is a decapitated artist. His body is in Second Life while his lifeless head lies on the other side of the screen, in the tangible world. His skull is in origami, made from paper folded into a multitude of modular and configured shapes. Etienne Joubert calls out to real people who pass him by but they do not answer. His words are condemned to float between the two worlds. He wanders, groping around, and talks to the other avatars he meets in Second Life.
