The Visioner
Interactive video with joystick interface, color with audio, 2008

La Visionneuse is an interactive installation which lies between the act of framing through a camera lens and the act of playing of a video. Without the involvement of the spectator, a simple photographic landscape is presented. When the viewer activates

the joystick, the static landscape becomes animated into a film. The viewer can choose the direction of the camera movement, which allows them to travel through the image, and can attempt to focus the image. Through the installation, the spectator of cinema -who is usually just a passive observer-

is transformed into multiple new positions of the viewer, the game player and the cameraman.
