The project consists of a slice videographic essai on the decomposition of the technological world of flight transportation. The origins of these compositions is the workspace of artist directly beneath one of the main corridors crossing carriers to Montreal (YUL Airport). A series of audio and video of the phenomenon have been registered for one year from the residence of the artist and are the main contents of visual and audio projet.
Le projet se compose d'une série d'essais vidéo sur la décomposition du monde technologique du transport aérien. L'origine de ces compositions est l'espace de travail de l'artiste directement sous l'un des corridors principaux traversant les transporteurs vers Montréal (aéroport YUL). Une série d'audio et de vidéo du phénomène a été enregistrée depuis un an à partir de la résidence de l'artiste et constituent le contenu principal du projet visuel et audio.
