Rings of holes are arranged to match the Rose window of Notre Dame cathedral. Each hole is illuminated by a cinematic sample of Joan of Arc. Each portrait was scrubbed in real-time to make them turn, sigh, or scream like puppets. The video segments radiate from the centre in chronological order (oldest version to newest remake). The collective voices are a choir of misery. With each remake, the history is further obscured into exaggerated cliche. The facts eroded, only the flaming middle persists both in image and fact.
