The While True project is articulated around the idea that the space transcribed in a photograph, a flat two-dimensional object, is a mental space. For the third dimension of the image is the result of the cerebral work done by the beholder in front of a photograph.
This project presents a bloc formed by three machines, each of which activates a camera. Like a rostrum, the cameras film a photograph in a kind of travelling shot, and can be angled so as to film the machine next to them. The filming, editing and screening all happen in real time. The installation gives the visitor an omniscient vision of the action. The editing of the film is enacted by a computer programme operating in a loop which determines the movement of the cameras, the editing and the duration.
A cross between sculpture and experimental video, the While True project plays reflectively on the process of creating and screening a film. Whereas a film director is constrained by three-dimensional space, here the photographic image takes place mainly in the space of the film. The relation between real space and fictive space in the production of images is at the heart of this project. The industrial atmosphere of the installation is also an ironic evocation of certain audiovisual products that one could imagine to have been created by machines.
