Private Project


Manœuvres is a video series inspired by the development of driverless cars and dash cam compilations. On one hand, several technical, economical, moral and ethical issues are raised by vehicles that maneuver without human intervention. On the other, dash cam videos display accidents or spectacular events that portray roads as places where the unexpected occurs. The works play with the tension that arises when confronting the programmed behaviors of mobile robotics with the unpredictable nature of the world.

Director Statement
