Blinkity Black - Film - 22min - 2023

présenté dans le cadre de l'exposition Panorama 25


One blink, one lost image.

A second one, another lost image.

And so on, tens of thousands of times a day. *Blinkity Black *is created from all the moments that escape the eye simply because our eyelids close.

This small, spontaneous and seemingly insignificant gesture plays a crucial role in perception. In the blink of an eye, our brain processes the flow of information that floods us every day.

If we could discover all these lost moments, once we close our eyes, what would we discover? And what image would we save? This is the quest of the man at the heart of this story.
