Fabien Giraud and Raphaël Siboni (born respectively in 1980 and 1981) are a duo of French artists from Paris. Coming from the disciplines of documentary and film, Giraud and Siboni focus their research on the notion of the measurement and perception of the world. Their questioning of the evolution of techniques, time and relationships of scale leads them beyond the human scale, towards an image outside of the world.
