Unusual? by Sophie Dascal, Switzerland


Unusual? stages the monotony of daily life, its banality, its repetitiveness. But in this daily life arises an uncontrolled event; through the repetitive movement of zapping arise images that make sense by chance. Unusual? offers a reflexion on chance and its relation to images, on the central place occupied by chance in art whereas it is excluded from everyday life. What if sense was not to be found in the explicated and explicable world but in the ungraspable dimension of chance?


I'm a master student in cinema at the University of Lausanne. I have interest in the theoretical and historical aspects of cinema as well as in the practical ones. I try to link these elements in my work.
