«For, in fact, what is man in nature? A Nothing in comparison with the Infinite, an All in comparison with the Nothing, a mean between nothing and everything. Since he is infinitely removed from comprehending the extremes, the end of things and their beginning are hopelessly hidden from him in an impenetrable secret; he is equally incapable of seeing the Nothing from which he was made, and the Infinite in which he is swallowed up.»
Blaise Pascal, Pensées.


‘Infinity and Nothingness’ proposes a reflection around the human and its place in the universe.
The installation consists of a video captured live and projected on a screen.
The public is invited to cross this screen on which its image on one side or its shadow on the other are repeated to infinity.
A mise en abyme of our relation to the world, our intimate convictions or our own doubts.
