« Land (muet) »
The video work « LAND (muet) » is a hypnotic silent travelling shot through cinematic landscapes at the edge of abstraction. Lights and textures carry viewers on a journey along a figurative road of aerial movement and trucking road trip, from snow desert to American desert. Syncopated editing pushes viewers through visual forms that reference an imaginary aural space. Images intertwine in a horizontal space-time that skewers perceptions.
