Parc Mont-Royal

A random and almost meaningless event witnessed at Mont-Royal Park, made it possible to evidentiate the relationship between the observer, the observed and the gaze. Cinema vérité and chance colliding with 16mm formal experimentation, were means to escape from the biases ingrained in our personality, personal history, and culture. The use of expired 16mm film stock accentuates the unsettled relationship between the formation of the gaze and the apparatus of cinema, permeating the video piece with a subtle critique on the technology of cinema.

The video piece is not going to be ever finished. It needs the interpretation of the observer. As we intersect with this piece in a specific historical moment, it provides a point of purchase on the human experience of the gaze.
