Métrocosme is a 10 minutes loop video installation that was presented for the "Point Final" exhibition at the Elephant Paname arts centre in Paris on December 4th-6th, 2015.
Half way between technical experimentation and exploration of a slice of Parisian society, the video, made of more than a thousand still (photographic) pictures, takes the spectator on a metro ride in which they will experience the normally fast-paced, often ignored, frequently dreaded world of public transport in a different, hopefully fascinating way. Voices, sounds, faces and gestures punctuate the image, as the slow pace of the video walks them through the entire length of the train, enticing them to observe with fresh eyes this seemingly mundane setting.
