Bertrand Dezoteux interest himself with the new audiovisual medias (software of 3D modelling) formaking hybrid virtual objects. His art work deals with the relations between the people, the work, the daily life and the escaping. With the exhibition "Waiting for Mars" Bertrand Dezoteux speaks about a scientific experimentation that happened in Russia between 2010 and 2011. Six men have been cut off the world during 520 days. The aim of that experimentation was to study the psychological and the physical consequences of a real travel to Mars.
Bertrand Dezoteux has directed a film and also made some puppets for twisting the stories invented by the American NASA and the science - fiction novelists. He shows that the characters (the puppets made with wood, with moss and fur for the hairs) driven by professionals do only banal and repetitive works inside a closed universe. The long time of the experimentation and may be the long time of the travel towards the red planet arouses a deep boring among the members of the equipage.
