The video CONT#CT (2022) is a montage of landscape sequences taken from open databases. We cross forests, fly over deserts and watch splendid sunsets, following the voice of an explorer who seems lost within these images. She comments on her journey, trying to describe this strange elsewhere. But she appears to be torn between an addictive fascination and the doubts that invade her as her drift takes her further away from reality. Is she lost in a metaverse? In an open world video game? This existential journey takes us to the gates of the mystery of human destiny, in a world in disarray in search of new narratives.
