Realness: Cloud and Dust

The multiple scenes of ‘Realness – Cloud and Dust’ creates an artificial space of luxurious vegetation with semi-humanoid growths. A virtual fantasy of symbiosis between human beings and their natural environment.


Sandrine Deumier: With her dual philosophical and artistic training, Sandrine Deumier has constructed a multifaceted poetry focused on the issue of technological change and the performative place of poetry conceived through new technologies. Using the material of the word as image and the image as a vector of the word, she works at the interface of the video medium and sound poetry, considering them as sensitive devices to express a form of unconscious matter of the self. The process of writing and the moving images then work together in an ebb and flow of underlying meanings that make reference to the wavering of reality and the transfer of reality via unconscious thought structures. Her work consists mainly of poetic texts, video-poems, multimedia installations and audiovisual poetic performances in collaboration with composers.
