I’ve always thought that to speak of a “material” needed to know, that is the work itself. This conference talking about mobile and creation, so it seemed obvious to me that he must contain a time workshop, creative proposal.
So I, after referring to and discussed these issues, proposed the creation of a collective film, which you can see here.
This work, which seems simple, in fact leads to many intellectual elaborations. I will mention one: temporality. The fact of living time filming a movie, then see immediately the film (as filming I proposed was in Clip), raises awareness, the experience, the difference total, perception of time between the time of the shooting and that the screening, the time of the director and the viewer. This awareness led to think differently what is a filmic object.
My work as an exploration of creative possibilities of mobile crossed the passion of three researchers (and long-time colleagues) : Laurent Creton (economist), Laurence Allard (sociologist) and Roger Odin (semiotics), who asked me to jointly organize the first instance of Mobile Creation Symposium in June 2012. First instance in June 2012.
Second instance december, 2013, the 5-6.
