Orientations (Variation 1), 2010
The video Orientations is made of three sequences filmed by a subjective camera that recounts a wandering in the city of Tunis. The off-screen reflected in a glass filled with ink is used as a compass and an illusory float with a funambulistic progression. In this very simple optical device, the appearance of city fragments gives directions and stretches the horizon. This video installation shows a walk of short-sightedness and a gathering of images of the overflowing and distraction of senses.
