Publisher's presentation: [translation L'Ascenseur Végétal]
" Titanic's Wake is a reflection, through text and image, on worldwide capitalism and the maritime metaphor, as illustrated by Internet « surfing », the movie Titanic or the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.
Beyond the Titanic's Wake series itself, which is dedicated to the journey of an exhibition-ship chartered by the ITF (International Transport Workers' Federation), the book gathers together two additional bodies of work: Dear Bill Gates, a "happening" outside of one of Bill Gates' mansions, and Waiting for Tear Gas, about the 1999 demonstrations against the WTO in the port city of Seattle. "
