Frotter la Cité

Video, SD, stereo, 6:18 min., 2020/2008
The video shows me walking around my block with a video camera mounted onto my white cane with the lens directed to the ground. Similar to creating a frottage, the tip of the cane is recording the roughness of the surface. When the bumps are too hard, video errors are created. The soundtrack is recording the oscillating movement as well and is sensible to mechanical shocks.
Video still showing the tip of the white cane in lower left corner and fragments of the pavement.
