Œil pour œil — 1min16 This video is black-white. It is characterized by the fact that we can recognize the features of a human face. I did not want to cancel out all the shapes of my physionomy as I did in all my previous vidéos. But this monster is very special since it is…

However, a stare remains in this video! The simplicity of the materials I use is personally fundamental, I am very attached to the material’s visual sensation.
