Miroir is an investigation of a process that takes place in time. Vapor on a mirror disappears and reveals the mirror image, the portrait. The video Miroir is a moving image counterpart to my photographic work Le Miroir, a series of 5 photographs. It can also be seen as an allegory of Photography, which in its origins (daguerrotype) was a mirror (a copper plate coated with silver) where an image gradually appeared during the developing.
