The author’s vision of the current geological age charts the human effort to control the forces of nature that leave indelible physical traces on the face of the earth. The reversed-light images accentuate the contours of forms. The flickers of moments point out how blind and deaf we are to the striking degree of our impact, allowing for a deeper insight into the geometrical poetry of the landscape.


Films by French filmmaker Emmanuel Lefrant (1975) are based on abstraction as seen through the landscape. He is the director of the prominent European film distribution company, Light Cone and a co-founder of the art collective, Nominoë.
