This new body of works explores the duality between the biological and the digital state. The forest landscapes are merging with a computerized scenery that deploys a digital grid in an alternate world where the simulation intermixes with reality. Each painting symbolizes a digital metamorphosis to sequence the existence of singular entities with a computerized perspective. The assemblage of paint, drawings, and collages creates a multidimensional representation of an intricate future made of digital networks where fiction and reality become indissociable.
The Order of the Simulation

The series explores the concept of heterotopias as developed by the French philosopher Michel Foucault. Heterotopias describe spaces that are “other,” which is to say parallel spaces within the society are contradictory, transforming, incompatible, or illusionary. They are worlds that mirror the real world while at the same time upset them. Duval inserts the concept of heterotopias into representations of digital spaces through her works of art.
