The magical marsh is a fictitious place that I imagined superimposed on reality during the first lockdown: a place of dreams, of escape and reflection, of solitude too. From this dream and these thoughts a body of text was born, and this project (re)presents the attempt at visualising this journey. It is a matter of translating a set of colours, images, sounds and sensations that I have associated with the idea of this deserted palace, a place that is lived as both a refuge and a prison, the way I lived that first lockdown back in March: liberated and imprisoned. My work is mainly based on more or less abstract animations and video editing that builds this world, video that goes along an audio narration.
Two other parallel dimensions accompany it, a 3D space that would be either independent or integrated with the rest, and a sound work in collaboration with a musician friend. All these elements cohabit and the project aims to articulate them in harmony to create different pieces for the 7 texts that make up the magical marsh. The first track, ‘Ziggurat’, the one I’ve been mainly working on so far, acts as an introduction to this universe. Music by Hugo Saccardy

For the last month I have been working on the WIP Show identity.
