Ad. Lib.2 – Le Matrice
This video doesn’t actually have a narrative array, as it mostly deals with an abstract pattern of moments, glances and sensations.
Visual situations have been seized/stolen and definitely transformed thanks to video mixering andparticipation from several musicians.
Such videowork is not subject to any chronological issue and is intended for a videoinstallation with ten monitors and ten sound videos being played in random loop.
In virtue of its specifications and intentions, this videowork can be better compared with design artworks than with any film or documentary production. It is important to remark that it is not a finished « object », rather it proposes itself as a vision which is going to progress in time according to casual encounters and occasions.
