Monochromes is a series of chromatic walks through the city. Filmed using a smartphone, these urban walks are then processed by a dedicated software, which generates colorful compositions: each strip of the image is reduced to the average color captured by the camera. The video is no longer a visual testimony of the journey, but becomes a sensitive experience of color in its own right.
These strange and abstract barcodes represent a kind of colored DNA of a memory. In contrast to the infinite streams of photos that lose their value as they accumulate, these chromatic journeys laid on paper fade away to offer each person the opportunity to project a new story, a new imagination, whose narrative could not give the emotion experienced by the color.
From the lens through which they were born, these Monochromes thus become an exploration into a memory, an attempt at augmented imagination.
