Let’s imagine for a moment that this shuttle is full of travelers... .

Time can also play tricks on us. One can well imagine that time does not unfold as we believe. In fact, scientists cannot be more serious than this type of hypothesis, which often turns out to be just as far-fetched as it is right, as in the case of quantum physics.

But at the level of an individual, what happens if time comes to move?

The end of this film brings a small revelation about the whole series...

“Let’s imagine for a moment that this broom is a human being”, “let’s imagine for a moment that this pavement is a sun”, “let’s imagine for a moment that the night doesn’t exist”... in everyday life, incongruous and surrealistic visions of the world.

Twenty and one sequence shots, shot in 2009, in which I film myself, as I travel through life’s peregrinations, imagining by words a fiction based on the reality I am crossing.

I made this series with an innovative tool, the “Zoom Q3”, the first pocket camera equipped with an excellent quality microphone. It was this camera that invited me to do a work on the recording of the live voice in daily life.
