Programmatic image created for the art and science project Justice(s) , under the programme La Diagonale Paris-Saclay — Festival CURIOSITas 2014-2015, in collaboration with the legal expert Alexandra Bensamoun, CERDI, University Paris-Sud.

Justitia at the crossroads between appearance and reality...
In one hand, her true being, her raison d’être: the scales of justice.
In the other hand, appearance: the narcissistic gesture of the cellphone self portrait,
the famous "selfie" flooding social networks, echo of our communication society
obsessed by the transformation of the slightest gesture into an image.
What is the true nature of justice ?
