Le lever du jour

2012
16mm film
duration / 420ft film reel (loop)


Rising of the day over the ocean.

Time based 16mm film which contemplates and investigates the quietest part of the day inspired by Stephan Mallarmé poem "Le vierge, le vivace et le bel aujourd'hui" (Virgin, vivid and in his all beauty today).
The film is a single shoot made on Atlantic Ocean shore catching exactly the moment when the Sun enlights the view, the exact visible passage between night and day.
