Full title: "Un voyage dans Norah regarde fixement un mur blanc dont les bords échappent à son champ de vision".
Un voyage dans Norah comes in the form of six videos that fragment the act of seeing into as many chapters. Constituted in the form of a narrative, the work stretches the instantaneous phenomenon of vision and invites its detailed exploration from the «physiological» definition of the perceived object (what is a white wall, in its concrete materiality?) to its mental projection in Norah’s mind (what is a thought?). A reconstitution nourished by writings and images related to optics, anatomy or cognitive sciences. At the heart of the story, Norah’s presence, silent and immobile, gradually imposes itself, interfering with the experience.
