From its beginning, the camera has been considered as a machine to explore time and movement. Slowing down images allows for their contemplation, thanks to nothing more than the mechanical process of cinematography. As a possibility of analysis and creation, slow motion reveals an unknown that is at once visual, psychic and physical.
"The cinema, destined to draw us into a still unknown poetic universe, has its origins in and takes all its means of expression from the most rigorous scientific processes."
- Elie Faure, Fonction du cinéma, 1964.
