The cross is at the base of all the orientation symbols.
The cross achieves the union of opposites, it allows you to indicate a place on a map.
The vertical and horizontal lines, intrinsically opposite, connect to allow you to discover a place, a conjunction spot.
In this picture, my aim is to make of this cross a symbol of life , of cunjunction, of union and concordance, on a cultural plan as well as religious beliefs, and also with regards to sexes and types.
The graphics systems used for those trucks and figurines are, according to me, very similar they are directly connected to the chromed materials and the lights of the vehicles, they take on the adornments of modern technicality, in an ostentatious mechanical streamline cacophony, pushing the excess in a digital explosion of repetitive form.
The shapes and materials usually inherent to the functionalism don’t exist anymore , not according to a rational prism.
Finally they are diverted, the aim being of imitating the adornments of technology, of copying so as to turn the meaning into a pretence, into unusual show off, technical and modern.
We are in the overstatement, in the cult figure, in the pretence, a sort of apotheotic unlikely visual carnival whereas our cold and conscientious world forces into discipline and optimization, into purification of forms.
In a way, this ridiculous craziness, this festive degeneration constitute a cure to neurosis, to limits, to duties required by reason that collective pressure imposes on us.
Through that unusual design I connect, cross sacred symbols, put together, mix and amalgamate all the commercial and spiritual cultures and civilisations.
For this reason I placed the U+2640 and U+2642 symbols of Venus and Mars along the two horizontal and vertical parts of that picture.
But I have also put the astronomical symbols of the other planets in the solar system and of the first asteroids that were discovered, so as to serve notice to what extent the binary prisms have trouble defining the human complexity and the type notions.
