Dans le nuage - In the cloud


Un appel avant minuit - A Call before twelve

Une histoire racontée pour les enfants. A story told for children.

Des cendres et des feux entremêlés dans un nuage sans bord qui sépare l'inspiration de l'expiration,

le temps parvint à les séparer et tout ce qui s'en suivit devint un autre commencement. 


Le brouillard entoure et diffuse
Une forme qui vient d'en haut
Une image qui tombe vers le bas
Ce qui tombe dans l'oreille du sourd
Revient vers les aveugles craintifs
Ils ont des yeux pour voir
Ils ont des mains pour toucher
Ce que l'on peut comprendre
Certains ont besoin de le vivre

Fog surronds and diffuses
A shape that comes from above
An image that falls down
What falls on deaf ears
Go back to the fearful blind
They have eyes to see
They have hands to touch
What we can understand
Some need to live it


bande annonce du court métrage

 

« Un instant dans l’univers : quelques secondes là-haut dans l’espace, quelques minutes ici-bas pour un homme, et combien pour la plante qui le regarde… Ces trois échelles de temps, petit à petit, se mélangent, se confondent pour plonger au cœur de la matière.» Dix puissance moins quarante trois seconde


 

« A cloud that veils one of nature's secret places. This is a stellar nursery, a place where stars are born. They condense by gravity from gas and dust until their temperatures become so high that they begin to shine. Such clouds mark the births of stars as others bear witness to their deaths. » - Carl Sagan, Cosmos: A Personal Voyage Episode 1: The Shores of the Cosmic Ocean


Even the Greatest Stars Discover Themselves in the Looking Glass, An Allegory of the Cave for Three People

« The installation, Even the Greatest Stars Discover Themselves in the Looking Glass, an Allegory of a Cave for Three People, stages an experience shared by three audience participants as mediated through two custom instruments and a photographic apparatus. It explores identity and the body, specifically in relation to data surveillance and portraiture/photography.

Borrowing the format of a script, it defines an interaction between three people, each with a specific role. The “star” looks at her/himself in a mirror, while a grid (the “metric”) is projected on her/his face. The two other performers (“administrators”) sit in front of a screen, directly opposite the mirror. They can see the screen, but can't see the “star.” The “administrators” control the image of the “star,” while the “star” can’t see them or the image they are controlling. One “administrator” defines the resolution of the projected “metric.” The second “administrator” defines the way the image is resolved on the screen. All three participants are a part of an integrated media system, but they act independently. »
