Production : M2F Créations, DICRéAM
PSL Dabbled Island outlines the encounter with a moving shore country, whose story unfolds and tolds as you walk by ; a drilling through the layers of reconstructed identities that follows the successive deposals of rivers Rhône: the exploration of an outcrop of singularities weathered by the winter winds and brightened by the summer mirages. PSL Dabbled Island is an icosystem i.e a digital model that distributes the movie on different screens following internal rules of composition and a part of randomness. The sense of places crystalizes for a moment in the machine.
