Firewalk inside of me

"Firewalk Inside of Me" was at first a photograhic research. Only later on I decided to start filming sequences and to turn the subject into a video.
The result is build around a non-linear narrative structure, for which I created a soundscape and wrote two poems in French and English that have been added as a voice over.

The video was introduced as follows: "Locked in her room, she dozes off into a weary dream. Behind the red curtains, her fears and desires come to life. She is trapped inside the folds of burgundy cloth and blood red sheets. Her memories and feelings seem to materialize into something that has not yet been defined. The tension between life, dream, love and death, is becoming a never-ending reverie. Night wanderers caught behind closed doors."

On this page you can also find some pictures taken from earlier projects: "Mindscape" and "Skin". I consider bodies and landscapes as visual instruments to
develop a vocabulary of "the unconscious".
