Mouth of an eye was inspired, caused by the machine to keep the voices, "the telephone answering machine".

1°/ The Mouth

At the beginning of January 2001, among all the warm messages of good wishes, an unusual message caught my attention... By its tonality, its fragility, its distance, its faraway, beyond the grave....

2°/ The eye

Then, the idea came to me to film, to capture this voice, these voices, these messages.
Throughout the month of January 2001, I was attentive to my messages.
An intuition came to me: to superimpose, activate, incorporate certain images, objects and friends that ritualized my daily life.
Thanks to the small digital - magical camera I could film in situ the most intimate part of this experience, intense moments that I felt as magical, voodoo.
