A Cinema- Architecture of Impossible Places
Format : DV, S-VHS, VHS. Running time : 4 minutes. Editing : IA Studio, Paris, 2002.

The video shows a night journey through a seemingly endless street. While moving along, the street actually closes in front of the observer. This creates an impression of simultaneous progress and stagnation, which underlines the feeling of emptiness or something unrealizable.

This video poses a question of hypnotizing character of video games, but also of man's need to bring himself in hypnotized state in front of the screen.
