"Infodermie" - a neologism composed of "information" and "epidemic" - is what I call the fighter jet that I 'built' with newspapers from Cairo, Jerusalem, New York and European countries. The bomber is reminiscent of the paper planes that children play with. In this work, the playful aspect collides with tangible reality in terms of form and content. Lying on the ground, the fighter jet bears witness to the often aggressive distribution of news and fake news and the risk of manipulating our perception. Who controls the flow of global information, who can stop the consequences of misinformation?

A bomber that launches missiles hits the target without knowing its victims.
