« The virtualism is an artistic movement that defines art forms designed with the help of digital tools. It interprets the notions of gestures and materials in the field of digital: the virtualist work is based on a creative act in power, reflected by the interfaces that reduce the action to simple actions, automated by peripheral tools. »

The raw material of digital creations being virtual, the acted gesture of creation redefines the creative act in power. Indeed, what is virtual is inherently powerful and the creative gesture in this case has no tangible impact on the material being worked. The gesture in power is what is observable in the digital, the acted gesture on the interface. The virtualism is a reconsideration of the creative act and its plastic relationship to the material.
