Passage du temps vers le futur...
Passage of time towards the future...

Although they are often seen as institutional or bureaucratic, I prefer to call the places I depict simply 'shared' spaces. While I enjoy warmly and lovingly depicting things usually seen as cold and uninviting, the choice of these types of spaces also reflects my love of High Modernist architecture and International Style. These too are haunted by the aspirations and ideologies which are historically associated with them, as well as the futures envisioned around them.
Aren't we always haunted by the future?
