For this exhibition, I’ve worked as a reporter: I’ve seen — I show.
Doing so, when I could identify them, the substance and form observed became isolated.
1Micromégas in his wanderings, also came across this problem.

In this case I’d like a rangefinder for a crutch, because it’s difficult to appreciate certain distances.
Like those of time: hunger, a glance. Longing.
Like understanding a straight right. A distorted corridor in a spaceship in the form of a 2wheel.

So be it: I have decided to make images from the vertiginous point of view of the draftsman.
Because I cannot ignore that my expression is characterized by a mad technological progress.
And it can hold my hand back.
Following these reflexions, instinctively, I’ve positioned myself around my impressions.

Like skulls were adorned in prehistoric times.
