The video Sleep, which is part of Time and the other (exhibition and book), is a unique shot made of a succession of photograms (taken with the help of a programmed intervalometer), each of them being a fragment of sleeping time recorded.
This shot repeats itself expanding at each replay and transforming its content as well as the rhythm of its images every time. The bodies in motion of the couple become abstract, blurring the border with reality.

Sleep is the place of total separation, a unique moment of solitude to which the other has no access. In this video, sounds and images are worked to create a sort of lyricism which is never total, as well as to express the swing between discord and harmony that exist in the relationship to the other and in love.
