The material detail of a walk across the Pont Marie is traced by fingertip and accompanied by a video camera, whose mode of “attention” slides from compulsive scrutiny of the action to gazing distractedly at the view in the background. Corresponding shifts in the treatment of picture and sound take place in the editing process. The footage is continuous (that is, uncut), but it changes speed, splits into layers, loses colour, admits other sounds, goes silent.
