“Eternity’s Index is part of a series involving Mimesis Trinity – a fictional company Dominique Sirois created in 2013.

Mimesis Trinity takes on the sphere on finance to highlight symptoms found on both individual and social levels. More particularly, the drive to gain and the fear of losing interplaying like the changing curves of stocks.

In Eternity’s Index the company has become specialized in mortuary services in a Transhumanism genre.” – Dominique Sirois

I create immersive sculptural installations; work which over the years has involved meditations on taut dichotomies between absence and presence, privilege and injustice, shelter and exposure, silence and silencing. But more and more these days, I also find myself emphasizing processes of corrosion and breakdown—especially as they reveal complex interactivities between surface appearance and underlying reality.
