Composed of horizontal
'windows', sometimes whole, sometimes diptyque or tryptique, this projection
is like a scenographical painting composed and recomposed by a random
algoritm. The piece proposes a consideration on time "present in
potential" of the meeting of these images on a screen. A harmonic
or disonnant partition, punctuated by a voix-off that initiates speech.
From a part of the
landscape to the body of a woman, to another part of the landscape,
the camera is progressing slowly, from one side to the other. It focusses
the landscape while making a 180°.
The body of the woman has been filmed in a singular
way: she is immobile, standing straight, static, in the centre of the
images made in very different places. One could imagine she is manifesting
: a female manifestor. What is she saying? What is she telling us by
her silent attitude?
This woman is there, present, resolute, she invests all places, not
concerned by climatological conditions or by her presence in a public
While the images,
collected on the web using the keyword 'attention' are projected on
a screen, a female computervoice is heard pronouncing the
phrases left by visitors on a special webpage. All these phrases
contain the word attention or one of its derivates, (The word that can
make one blush or flee.) This collection of attention phrases is very
heteroegenous: the very personal mixed with the intelectual, the poetic,
the ordinary, the ironic and the philosofical.
I remixed the phrases into a narration,which while reading it aloud,
obliged me to connect to the same different aspects of myself. The diversity
on the web became an instrument to explore the self.
