Temps mort

by Jasper Rigole

Starting from his personal collection of amateur films, the author crates a peculiar sequence of footages called “temps morts”. These little fragments of empty gardens, sleeping pets and flowerbeds are in his eyes more real than any home movie fragment. The term “temps mort” is also a reference to Michelangelo Antonioni’s films. The term was used to describe the way Antonioni’s camera frequently wanders to and holds on apparently insignificant details in the frame, non-narrativized elements that have the effect of draining significance from the events that have just unfolded.
