Oxymoronic House



This is a video I made with my friend and sometime collaborator Julie Delaittre. It was an entry for a competition organised by the ICARCH Gallery, under the title of the House of Oxymorons. The brief was to envision a house that incorporates and pacifies a duality (or several). We were interested in the friction present in the dense landscape of appartments in Paris where we both live. We live isolated private lives, often not knowing the names or even the faces of our immediate neighbours. Yet our physical proximity, and the porous nature of the buildings we live in, mean that we share some of the intimacy and banality of each other's daily life.
