The video gathers the last seconds, the final moments of some shots mostly filmed roughly with some silver, anagogic and digital video cameras.
These « non desired » frames bring together fascination and disturbance : the last image aims at the point when the present time stops. Then when it begins to exist there.
In the never ending process of its capture, this last image is an oxymorous destined to exorcize the End.
The endless nature of this film feeds on a captured present, day after day. Vain attempt to bring it out of the time flow.
Metronomic editing of the ultimate seconds of some footages filmed in 25 years, it is shown here as a thirty minutes long video.
