A cyclic intriguing machine in which the water drop, does not make the vase overflow, but very much like it.

Conference « between images »

Show in stop motion for a conference

A double­meaning conference or the (gigognes) realities.

A man is telling about Tantôt project and its particularities. This project is feeding itself with time, territory and image. These specificities are making this project a very peticular one. This is what the man is trying to tell, but it seams that his physical attitude, slightly strange, is disturbing everyone. He is actually trying to prove with his body a completely different theory : the (gigognes) reality ones.
