Using the video screen as a sculptural material, Emmanuel Van Der Auwera cuts out the filters that make up each LCD screen and places them on a tripod. In doing so, the images become visible in the form of fragments, depending on the viewer's position, and are discovered from several points of view. Captured by thermographic cameras used in the army or in surveillance devices, this sequence paints a fantastical portrait of the “Strip” of Las Vegas. Passers-by on the avenue clad with signs appear as unwilling filmed subjects, seen through the eye of a sniper.
