Master Space and Communication

Physical Editing

The idea came from a shot of the film Alphaville, 1965, where the French director, Jean-Luc Godard, is filming inside a small space. He moves the camera by turning himself, to follow the glance of different characters. When a character looks in one direction, we are suggested, like the director, to move ourself in that direction, into the space. This cinematographic technique is called “raccordo di sguardo” translated approximately in “gaze connection”. From this first idea, the project evolved, taking shape of an object that, without using arrows, can show us where to go.
