Loon, 2007

Loon» made to be projected in a theatre and featuring a sountrack by Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto, taken from the album Vrioon (Raster noton, 2002).

inspired by Jean-Jacques Rousseau's Rêveries d'un promeneur solitaire (1778), this series tries to transcribe a photographic walk accross the ghostly french city of Loon, at the bank of the North Sea. Some faceless androgynious portraits slip in the wake of enigmatic landscapes, interrogating the impossible determination of a still identity. This series aspires to unveil the elusive relationship between the individual and the world in which identities are disolved, derepresentating their breathes' ebb and flow.

The series is accompanied by a poem written and read by E.E. Cummings, "That melancholy" (thanks to Ubuweb).
