ALEX VERHAEST - Temps Mort / Idle Times - Diner Scene

Interactive video installation - Belgium

Temps Mort/Idle Times is an experi-mental film told through several interactive and non-interactive audiovisual works, about five family members who have a motive for the suicide of a sixth patriarchal figure. The work is an ongoing investigation into the mechanisms of film and a research into how interactivity can add to a story. A conversation between the characters starts after visitors call the number from a call card and the phone on the table in the scene starts to ring.
