Time-Lapse Movie,Algorithmic Soundtrack, 2003

L’âge Nu (The Unclad Age) is a film about nature and change, about the impermanence of life and the evanescence of things, about a world untouched by mankind, about images a dying old poet might have seen.

Build a custom HD time-lapse system (HD cameras were not widely available at the time).

Shoot ephemeral weather conditions in various European locations.

Rework the images in post-production to eliminate traces of human presence.
