Temps Mort ('Dead Space, or Dead Time") refers to the film theory idea that long takes of space appear to be 'dead' or without characters or action.
Temps Mort is an exploration of empty spaces taken from a large University-specifically spaces that seem to have a technological and architectural patina or age to them, in effect, offering a sense of science fiction-like ambiance. I wanted to imply or give the feeling that these spaces had been recently abandoned by people, where two surviving telescopes locate or 'look' at the empty places out of automaton curiosity. Sound effects extracted from the film "Alien" help embellish the film’s minimalistic visual style and highlight nostalgic attachments for what is considered “futuristic”.
