“Far, far away in my thoughts, at the end of the screen of my eyes printed with electronic images.”

Today, we first see the reality with our own eyes, and electronic images are superimposed, inform us, that is what is called augmented reality. It’s become our reality. Tomorrow or the day after tomorrow rather, perhaps, will we see the first reality with electronic images, richer, complete, informed, “smarter” than our own eyes. So the reality of our physiological vision will be secondary and perhaps some will perceive it, shadows, beyond the main electronic layer, probably then projected directly in our optic nerve.

This film is the staging of the bug of the electronic image, and the human attempt, at that time, to reconquer the actual vision. Shadows pass. A contemplative movie.
