Glass Video loop by Benoît Labourdette (1’10s, 2013). Raindrops on the window of a moving train. Plan sets a moving object. Metaphor of cinema: the film set in the device records the movement of the world before. In fact, a train is technically a kind of camera. This is not his first goal (which is the movement of people and objects), but it is a function he has. As the primary objective of cinema was not to tell stories, but to keep an accurate track of the real, while also recording its movement. thumbnail Benoît Labourdette
Video loop by Benoît Labourdette (1’10s, 2013).
Video installation. These are one-minute videos to be broadcast repeatedly on black surfaces. Work on the sensation of the landscape, the project to transmit an immediate impression. As a mix between Lumière and impressionist paintings ... made of pixels. Four image layers, whose pixels are subtracted from each other, a mostly black image with objects and bodies are revealed when they are shifted from each other : this is the time that makes the image.
