Let’s imagine for a moment that this radiator is a wall...
One of my wishes, in these films, is to build live soundtracks during the shooting, to move the “micro-camera” to make exist sounds in sequence plane.
This radiator fan, with its discreet sound, invited me to record it. It’s probably an embryonic soundtrack, but it’s a first try. I also pay more attention to the noises of manipulations of the device, which I try to reduce to a minimum (unless I choose to exploit them as such, of course).
So, since the framework was rather technical, the subject could not have existed at all, which is the best situation for this project. The “danger”, the fact of not knowing where we are going but opening up to the directions that the meetings propose, was total.
The myth of human control over the world has come back explicitly. My fear of repetition and boredom. But basically, no, it’s a variation on the theme, and maybe this set of films being made is an investigation against mastery, precisely. A project to work on the “correctness” of things. To this extent, it is not abnormal that this subject of the mastery of the frozen man returns. The most important thing is not to be complacent. And if it shows up from time to time, it’s that it’s something to work on, precisely.
