The climate control and the summer of love

Olivier Dollinger

The film The climate control and the summer of love is based on a single action carried out by a performer immersed in a setting that plays on the codes of the green screen studio used to produce special effects. The costume and mask worn by the performer bear similarities to the figure of the spectre in early silent films, her action being reduced to producing and maintaining in weightlessness a simple soap bubble above a glass table. The only form produced in the incrustation studio, the bubble, struggling with gravity and its inevitable disappearance, refers on the one hand to its motif used in classical painting, but also to a possible contemporary vanity linked to our relationship to images through their virtuality, their daily appearance and disappearance. In this micro-ballet, between a body and a bubble, a co-presence gradually asserts itself, blurring the markers to know who is supporting the other, the bubble or the character.
