O Dreamland, 2011

video, 16", sound stereo

O Dreamland was based on a movie of the same name, a Lindsay Anderson's documentary, filmed in 1953 in an amusement park in England. At some point, the viewer can see a glittering picture of a little genius, stating through a scroll: " The
dreams I dream are yours to see,* over there in reality. "

Having created a loop out of this short passage, I used its sound as sole source to recreate a soundtrack.

Combined to this new sound, the loop alters the viewer’s perception in a hypnotic, dreamlike way.
