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.
