An installation of Japanese bowls, lamps installed to decorate the countryside, in the context of “Encounters documentary film” in Mellionnec (Brittany - France).

The movement of these white balls with the wind, with superimposing / subtraction of the pixels, as a photographic natural, because of random movements. This reminds me of the draft digital camera Penelope carried by the company Aaton (Jean-Pierre Beauviala), who was to give the “flesh” to the digital image, adding random pixels...


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.
