A poetic video work: a young woman is blocking two armed soldiers from firing at protesters in a Palestinian village. The image is digitally processed and slowed down. The soundtrack is replaced with lyrical music. The scene is turned to a peculiar romantic dance, highlighting the magical and rare human connection formed for a brief moment, captured and transmitted by digital technology. The work deconstructs oppressors-protesters conflict, crystallising it to one on one poetic encounter, and at the same time offers an alternative in the young woman's action.

by Aaron Zeghers
An ode to the absurd, an homage to Bas Jan Ader, and an affirmation of Camus' notion that the absurdity of existence (and not gravity) links mankind to the world. “The absurd is the essential concept and the first truth…. The absurd depends as much on man as on the world. For the moment it is all that links them together. It binds them one to the other as only hatred can weld two creatures together.” – Albert Camus “I want to do a piece where I go to the Alps and talk to a mountain. The mountain will talk of things which are necessary and always true, and I shall talk of things which are sometimes, accidentally true.” – Bas Jan Ader

Through an aerial robotic movement, northern Canada’s sublime landscape is overflown by the machine’s eye, from the viewer's point of view. The opening on a snow-capped cinéparc, with a white cinema screen in the middle of the landscape, invites the viewer to get lost inside the machine’s God point of view.
