Skylines, ignition !

Taken from Arianespace rockets launching archives, this video shows two geographic and technological opposite worlds: the first one, Guyane where the Ariane 5 rocket is assembled and launched, and Kazakhstan, house of the Soyouz model. The combined images are no longer a raw documentation, rather a dreamlike concoction of the preparation of a journey into the space.

Video commissioned by Arianespace, for the exhibition Dans la nuit, des images. Coproduced by Le Fresnoy Studio national des arts contemporains.
