For The Moment is an installation that uses a super 8 projector. This one projects on a mirror an image which shows itself seen from behind with hands installing a film reel. Caught in the projection reflected by the mirror, the projector inscribes its shadow in the image projected on the wall behind it. The shadow of the projector takes the place of its image. Only the hands remain, struggling, in a loop, to mount a film reel on the shadow of its projector.
