La Dauphine et Le Cordonnier
Ten years ago, in May and June 2006 we were working on the video drama ‘La Dauphine et Le Cordonnier’ in Vallauris and Cannes. This community-based production featured participants from the region in a story about transformation. The premiere projection, on the exterior wall of A.I.R. Vallauris, took place on Friday, June 23, 2006.
Synopsis: While preparing for the festival season, a small town in the south of France is surprised to receive a rising star in their midst.
La Dauphine was created during a residency at A.I.R. Vallauris on the Côte d’Azur. The video features local residents and the buzz surrounding the 2006 Cannes Film Festival.

This project features soundworks, videos and photos. The works are based on research carried out in the Florida Everglades. Recognized as one of the largest swamp complexes in the United States, the Everglades is actually a slow moving freshwater ecosystem. Focusing on the passage of man in this River of Grass, the project examines ideas of swamps as metaphors for decay, ruin, transformative agents of physical and spiritual states.
A publication based on the project is planned for release in 2017.
