Taxi mood in NYC
Fiction taximobile, électrique Babylone
L’espace urbain comme épreuve cinématographique
La ville à travers l’écran… Hypertemps
Cadence: essuie-glace
La vision du temps parcouru en taxi et en dollars


  • October   It’s raining. I’ve left the hotel with my luggage and all my bags… Jean is a dirty B…. I don’t even know where I’m going so I stop a taxi and ask the driver to just drive. After all, I feel well under cover beneath the rain…I’m honorably lost… I can’t help staring at the meter –  $3.70 I can hear the noise of the city and the noise of  rain. What am I doing here? I feel that I know this journey by heart. It is unexpectedly and pleasantly changeable. I decide to take pictures of urban space from the windscreen. The taxi driver doesn’t say a word but I can feel he’s stressed. I love the noise of  police sirens here… As if I were in a submarine… I travel… without an emergency exit… There are a lot of cars and the meter now shows $3,80 I open the window a little bit. It’s difficult to breathe outside. I like the smell of rain in cities. I finish up my roll of film. I feel better. The meter runs, $4,00… I already know I’m going to go back to the hotel. I ask the driver to go back…to change his itinerary and I also ask him to put on some music…

    « Je m’éjecte au bord d’une ligne, là où le pare-brise détient l’histoire répétitive d’une image prête à se changer au travers d’infiltrations « chro-mobiles ».

    Déambulation sans point de repères, scandée par des occurrences textuelles, visuelles et sonores (version interactive).
    Un interrogatoire défile, alibi de la présence du voyageur. A la limite de… sur le point de… traffic d’attente… souffle blanc…
