The four parts of this video present an event without offering a specific interpretation. There are predominant features in each of the parts which could refer them to the four natural elements: fire, earth, air and water. Each element is taken out of the context of nature and placed in one or more artificial contexts. This video is produced in collaboration with Sylvaine Martin, a participant in the music program at the Banff Centre.

Ce vidéo divisé en quatre parties se réfère aux quatre éléments naturels. Le feu, la terre, l'air et l'eau y sont tour à tour présentés dans des contextes plus ou moins artificiels, de façon à modifier leurs significations. L'apport de la culture à l'interprétation des phénomènes naturels est ainsi mis en relief. La musique originale, composée par Sylvaine Martin, tente d'établir un rapport entre l'image et le son, et cherche à démontrer leur réciprocité au niveau de l'interprétation.
