Aucun mur n’est silencieux
(No Wall Is Ever Silent)
The video was shot in a former bank in Geneva (which is now one of building of the art university). The building holds the leading role, whilst voices of professionals with a unique perspective on the space encourage us to observe hidden details. The voices come from various interviews with a police inspector in charge of burglary, a ghost hunter, a game designer, a specialist in modern architecture. We’ve gathered all the interviews here (unfortunately they are only in french). Through theirs eyes, we explore how built environment can be misused, as if every building was a spatial puzzle waiting to be solved.
