UNCOMPRESSED is an interactive film that allows viewers to choose the path that they will follow. Finding themselves in the middle of a world not far removed from science fiction, viewers become involved in a story avout human cloning. Six character’s tales are told from their own perspectives. The interface allows the audience to view the tale from any of these viewpoints and to switch between them at interaction points.

Voxelations: Her Voice is an interactive work featuring kinetic image and text, and sound. It is a modular work that combines photographic images of real women, and images from the media, advertising and other representations in the public domain. The interface makes use of a linear structure, based on true stories from my mother’s personal history, and lateral, dislocating links that expose the persuasivness of media images.

A reflection on freedom in interactive media, where pictograms are used to navigate through a diversity of poetic, visual and question-raising multimedia tableaux. A non-linear adventure that never takes you to the same place in the same way, and where you can’t go back on your steps…

Paris Network assembles photographs, sound samples, animations and texts to form a composite, layered image of the city, combining digitized traces of physical places and people with information garnered from individual and collective memory. As the map turns around in a spiral movement, you seem to move in, from one zone to another, toward the subject, but as you get closer, you begin to lose your bearings. In each zone, you explore the city differently. Four entrances, four ways of looking, four structural devices. You will always have, even as you move around, a fragmentary view, evoking a vast, more complete “hors-champ”, which always seems out of reach. You enter as if you were breaking in.
