In 2003, I extended my thoughts and decided to decode the masses. Here, crowds are scanned, dug up, divided by codes.

Each object has a unique bar code whose principle is universal. In this way, when associated with human society, the code signifies a double implication: belonging to a group and the certainty that each number is unique.

This research also uses the grid for reading genetic codes. On a layered photograph of a crowd, a single DNA mark suggests individual specificities.

Crowds of individuals exploring codes stirs up the infinite richness of possible paths.
