As a teenager, I spent hours at night watching TV, flipping, searching movies and short films featuring people of my age and stalking endlessly moments where something was slipping. With my fingers on my camera or the RECORD button on my VCR, I kept all those images or video fragments to gradually form a primer of what I then perceived as the essence of my desire.
Later I equipped myself with a small camcorder that would gradually become my new collection tool, but this time it would be in people around me or whom I met that I was going to track down these moments. I waited sometimes for long moments looking for any gesture; gaze, for any situation that may become an image of a different nature than it actually was. These skids. These incidents.
