Nos Maisons Volantes / Our Flying Houses is a collective hypnotic loop of imagined houses.

I gave to 6 classes a paper with the drawing of 3 empty squares in line, and another one with the drawing of 3 empty triangles in line. Students were free to color them or to paint them or to draw on them, they did what they wanted. There was just one rule : coloration had to be the same for all of three squares and the same for all three triangles, because in animation with 3 frames and a ‘static shape’, we can create a LOOP.

Nos Maisons Volantes – un film partagé, is part of the research for my short film project Mes Maisons Volantes (My Flying Houses).

Nos Maisons Volantes workshops were held in the territory of Châteaubriant-Derval (France) in October-November 2020, during the Artist in Residence Program ‘Poetic Vision’, organized by the Communauté de Communes Châteaubriant-Derval (Loire-Atlantique French Region) and supported by DRAC Pays de la Loire, the French Ministry of Culture and Picofilms.
