Worthlessness, 1997

In Worthlessness, Edith Dekyndt shows the effect of wind on plastic bags found on the street. Filmed by the artist, this waste, witnesses of the consumer society, become random and moving shapes whose look follows external transformations and spatial wanderings, through very diverse environments. The video follows a prosaic object and reveals a movement that is usually unnoticed. It thus makes it possible to divert the experiment towards a poetic field where the futility of a phenomenon is transformed into a sketch with great sensibility.
