An elderly woman recounts the loss of a photograph that was particularly important to her. Her story
is punctuated by diverted Aristotle’s phrases, which recall the irruption of the choir in the ancient
tragedy. A dialogue is thus produced, at times enigmatic, which seems to put contemporary history
in relation to that of the 20th century.
As a decor for this dialogue, aerial images of a virtual Paris, which nevertheless reveal very real data
centers, hidden by an architecture that mimics the urban landscape. The register of words collides
with the the visual, projecting meaning onto our image technologies, and pointing out the idea of the
« cloud » as a contemporary myth."
