"Composings" is a prject begun in 2010 which involves in exploring urban space through the presence and the mobility of bodies in a delimited time. This work is conducted in different european cities always with the same photographical process. Its different forms ("Composings I", "Composings II", "Composings III", "Composings IV") offer to the spectator different modes to read the space.
The art process has two main steps. The first is an extraction of the bodies from their environment by refraction of the light. The image takes shape in a relation of disappearance / appearance at the time of the photographic capture, when the camera extracts the bodies, mobile and immobile, while the architectural details of the space disappear simultaneously.
" In the urban space, I choose a high point of view, outside or overlooking outside, which will remain fixed and constant throughout the photographic capture. I choose a posture, the most unmoving and which enables to my eyes to remain moving between my camera and the space that I photograph. The photographic capture is realized at the time of zenith, when the light is the most intense, at regular intervals and on a period which is determined by the nature of the traffics of the bodies. It varies between 20 and 90 minutes in the differents versions of the project and / or in a version. "
The second step concerns the construction of the image, the appearance of a space by the serial or the accumulation of photographs, that is according to the temporality of my photographic observation. The image processing tries to remain the most minimal, being consecrated to the positioning of the different shots in particular .
The final image is that of a space that the appearance of the bodies and (if any) their accumulation reveal. The issue is to think about the organization of our spaces that our bodies define and the situation of the body in a space composed of more and more technology.
