Stopover-Travel Diary

Interactive video installation, 2015 – work in progress 

A memory is not a definitive memory storage, because it changes according to the contingencies and objectives of a life. In the light of this subjective (re) construction of memory, Stopover-Travel Diary is a wandering behind the scenes of memory favoring connections, relationships between various isolated and experienced places to find a trajectory for them by reading the coincidences that cross a personal story.

Stopover-Travel Diary is made up of two video projections. The first, visual, is projected on a wall and presents places where I have traveled. The second, textual, is oriented on the lid of a suitcase left opened. By facing the wall projection, the viewer finds himself embedded in the visual projection giving him the feeling of participating rather than observing.
