5pm at Custom House

Folkestone Harbour Arm

I enter a box with a hole, I extend my arm and a photo camera grips on my hand.

I'm separated from the world by a filter of superiority, an illusion of control and lack of touch.

 

While I'm more and more blindfolded, I archive every shots, every insignificant click, every automated impulse. I'm trying to expand knowledge but I'm ending up more and more lonely.

I'm feeling the weight of the camera, my arm is shaking and my voice trembling

I'm occupied extracting data and I'm circumscribed by infinite formulas and numbers... too many for me... thanks God there are machines...
