    With this thesis, I want to lay down some key concepts that I carried out in my work throughout the years. It is an attempt to communicate both my thoughts and intuition regarding my art. I will try to describe the mechanism that makes entropy and negentropy important and relevant in the context of art based on the theory of Rudolf Arnheim. I will introduce the concept of ‘bricolage’ starting with Claude Lévi-Strauss’s work, and we will see how an exclusively French word can describe a common trait of many artists starting with my practice. Finally, using Albert Camus’s Myth of Sisyphus as a basis, I will try to develop a reflection on the absurd, its different manifestations and its implication in art, and the figure of the idiot. All the concepts discussed in this text constitute several interconnected dimensions of my past and future research. It goes without saying that the generalities present in this text come from a subjective interpretation. The political and poetic implications of these subjects surround my reality and many remain for me to discover.
