This collection of experimental interactive movies, made by the artist over several years, shows live-action works in which the visual metaphors for interaction are inherent in the filmic material. Because the movies are conceived from a visual approach, script writing is not involved in its traditional sense. The films can be selected on the touch screen from a menu which divides the works into five different categories according to the main area of investigation of each film : Landscape, Spatial Navigation, Documentary, Multiscreen, Fictional comedy.
