Erect statues ... Why? How? Where to look?

The statues

Erect statues to show the jobs of the people of a nation. Why not. But behind this project, what it the hidden meaning ? What statues are the deepest sign of ? What are they talking about, really ? Power ? Art ? Beauty ? End of the world, because they show as eternal... Are they an immortal mirror of men who made them, or they are supposed to represent ? Are they just alive ?


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.
