The reality around us is far more fragmented space than it appears in the first instance.

The pavement of the street is probably not, if you think deeply, a single continuous support, homogeneous, where our feet take us from one place to another. Does the assembly of these manufactured parts on the floor follows a linear logic ? Is a move will actually go from one point to another ? Is a place is fixed in its place ? Are we not, in fact, in several places at once ? When our body moves, is it really moving ? The reality may be more complex than the apparent simplicity it seems to offer us in the everyday life. Does time obeys to the simple chronological logic ? This type of questions that were asked, very seriously, by physicists for over a hundred years, who found extremely destabilizing responses, leaded to, particularly through the conceptualization of quantum physics, enabled by the displacement of the representation of reality they gave product, the invention and development of a very large part of the technologies that make our lives today, that in their hearts do not obey physical linear logic. So, let us ask ourselves these kinds of questions for what happens in the heart of our lives, from our experience.

Kaleidoscope offers a very “organic” vision. As a visual metaphor of cell division, it opens up a field of perceptions and emotions, far beyond the ornamental it might seem at first glance. This figure has always concerned me, I offer you cinematic explorations.
