Description

This short video represents a late evening from the 6th floor of a building in Nantes, France. There, time controls the movements of shadows, swallowing the roofs, the balconies, the chimneys... The city slowly becomes a mirror, reflecting me and my small world, and finally swallowing me too into the light.

This video might be a small piece of me, which I tried to draw with honesty, through the fullness I feel when I look at this view from my room. The blue of shadows and the yellow of light make me happy, as well as the multitude of details that I know by heart. The sound of my grand mother's clock and a song by Agar Agar which I played on the piano contribute to building my smooth bubble of happiness.
