12'45 / DV / 2015

The diffraction of the light distorts the arm which oscillates above a puddle of which the darkness resounds with the strangeness of the music. The light shines everywhere; it floods the landscape, filling his translucent surfaces in silvery tints and sparkling in the horizon. The movement of the water is passed on in the bright beating which echoes in the hearing pulsation, until progressing in a crescendo linking sound vibration, bright agitation and physical contortions.

SYNOPSIS: The audiovisual work is the opportunity to renew how we see all those things that surrounds us and to reconnect with ourselves. Annecy is all the more difficult to see that its tourism promotion blows away the other images, more sensitive, sometimes very poetic keept in its streets, its lake and the hillsides of its mountains. To favor this approach, a selection is made in the choice of images and sounds where the non-essentials disappear, developed along with four seasons, along with summer in spring.

SYNOPSIS : A girl goes to cinema where Robert Bresson's ideal movie is programmed . From the started of the projector, the hypnotic voice shelling " Discourse on the Method " dishwashing in the musing where she imagines itself with the cashier, travelling through the cinematography of the director. So she seizes in the passage of "Pickpocket", " "Un condamné à mort s'est échappé", "Lancelot du lac", "Les anges du péché" and "Le journal d'un curé de campagne". These returned images, are contaminated by the kitsch aesthetic of the advertising imaging, dominating our environment. The oppositions between the themes of the monologue and the actions of the characters provoke cracks in what we could imagine to be the representation of the world of the philosopher, letting believe in a failure of the discourse.
