Today, I am just a butterfly sending you a sentence
In collaboration with David-Alexandre Guéniot
On April 15, 2015, Josephine Witt, a ‘free-lance’ political activist, interrupts the E.C.B. (European Central Bank) press conference, throwing a shower of confetti and papers at its President, Mario Draghi. From the moment the activist moves from the front row until she is taken by the security 23 seconds pass. However, the photos of the event will circulate for the next 24 hours in newspapers and television reports all over the world. This video is an experimental visual essay based on the photographic images found on the internet of this event. Using image cuts and the montage to attempt to reconstruct all actions happening in the photographs.
