SYSTEMA

by Françoise THOMAS
1984 / 16mm / color / sound / 1S / 4' 00




The isolated elements of a typewriter, or the typewriter as a whole, illuminated by coloured spotlights, are first of all considered as plastic objects. Gathered together on the screen, more or less identifiable, they can then play with other elements.
In the case of abstract elements, only shapes, movements and colours connect them, but as soon as silhouettes appear, other relationships are established.
Do the isolated elements of the machine return to their mechanical functions? Do they constitute another system in which the silhouettes are caught or a system in which these silhouettes participate?
