"What takes place in History, this is the Idea, the Spirit, in short, a profound rationality. The Reason governs the world and history." Hegel. Philosophy of History.

Today no one can seriously doubt that the concept of revolution is a central organizing assumption of a political life. Revolution is an attempt to remake the world and human nature itself in accordance with its own vision of a fair and humane society. For most social and political theorists it was the French Revolution that became the model by which they could measure the revolutionary change.

With my last Artwork "La Liberté guidant la Révolution", I want to mention the recent revolution in Ukraine and the usage of social networks by people as a tool in making it. For me, as for an artist, Digital artworks represent the best way to express all these elements.
