Digital drawing n. 50 from Devisement du Monde, Sleeping horses, a series of digital drawi

An ironic take on misuse of new technologies, Sleeping horses and Sunset in Khiva take shape in a digital flip book. Initially shot as a time-lapse with an analog video camera on a 35 mm color film, the original videos expose events of an hour’s time within seconds. Slow-paced scenes of light and weather chang- es are accelerated and frame selection is timed and mechani- cal. The two travel documentary shorts are reinterpreted frame by frame through a series of digital drawings. The final result is a pdf document containing a precise sequence of recreated stills. Displayed on an e-book reader, it forces the viewer to flip through the pages click by click, failing to provide the gravita- tional flow caused by the manual operation of a common paper book. The artwork does not focus on the elements lost during the transformation process, but on the lack thereof. It centers on time pockets and on what was put on hold between the clicks of the camera and the e-reader device, used by the artist and the viewer, respectively.
