CD / book about human encounters and enchantment

Published in 2003 in CD / book, “Danser-dormir” A.. Strid has been shown in projection-conference in Paris, Marseille, Montpellier, Issy les Moulineaux, Aix en Provence, Toulouse, Gardanne …

In “Danser” characters cookies tell myths behavior: dancing and fighting, they end up breaking every time – they were changing the species starting over. In “dormir”, sleep three fingers in the water under the eye of a black cow, how to be human, scoured by the elements, enchanted by the world’s perception, or awakened by a cop, prey, chase or poor.

“An Exploration of the human. Drift. Links between poetic acts that exist in this world that are called real. In exploring, we will expand the boundaries of this place. A whisper in our ear. A caress of look at a rose. Cookies characters – are not porcelain dolls – fall to pieces. Fingers sleep in water, with drops as the only drum. We will clarify things better. To see clearly. ”

-Nicolas Tardy

Switching is a different type of film that paves the way for new storytelling methods. Switching was specially developed for DVD video. The fascination with interactive expression basically originates in its potential to depict a more fragmented form of reality. The user of this film enters a narrative labyrinth simultaneously unfolding and disrupting the story. A film is now something you can change by touching it. Film has become “pliable”.

There are three element that explain why Switching departs form the linear form. The first is that the film can be changed at any time. Consequently, the user can jump back and forth in time and location. The second is the fact that interface and content are not divided; in order words, the screen has no buttons to click – the interface is transparent. The film itself is the clickable object. Accordingly, linear control and logic disappear. The third element is teh fact that the narrative is structured around a circular system in which everything repeats itself. So it has no ending. The film continues forever in its circular universe.

Switching est produit par Oncotype. Financé par et en collaboration avec le Danish Film Institute, avec le soutien du Fonds de développement du ministère de la Culture, le programme MEDIA de l’Union européenne et de la DFI Film Workshop.
