During a trip to Asia, I filmed the lights of the city and the buildings. By using a slow shutter speed and making micro-movements with the camera (rotations, undulations, back and forth, ...), I captured the traces of light. A bit like a painter, I painted black canvases with these light waves. This video presents, chronologically, my trip with these abstract landscapes. The sound, recorded on site, is the documentary part of the artwork.
« At night, the cities are building their dome. The luminous beams are vibrating and crossing each other. Voices and mechanical sounds are creating a new language. The light rays dive into the sensors of my camera. »
