The animals of Stella.

While out exploring in the winter months, an almost prodigious chance encounter bring me to the shores of the lake ‘des Eaux-Chaudes’ (Alps of Haute Provence, France), the place that will become a creation laboratory of the video installation Les animaux de Stella/The animals of Stella.

The human voice frees itself from the coded language and interacts with other sounds becoming part of the place, which in turn is internalized by the child. Thus a reciprocal dialogue is established, a spontaneous communication that brings out an intimate bond of affection.

An equal relationship is progressively fostered between the girl and the environment that welcomes her, in an attempt to renew the ancient relationships between human and non-human.
