This long-term project began as I travelled to the Alps in 1994. PYLOD mainly takes the form of a semi-documentary 16mm short film but also lends its name to an extended project comprising photographs, drawings and an installation.

With its intimate style and expressive sound, this film depicts the machine’s parallel existence, its relentless rhythm and will of its own, taking the viewer into a mechanical world of poetic, repetitive and romantic imagery. An encounter with the machine as a seductive organism is also a meeting with the darker reasoning of the human mind. Feelings of restlessness, longing, loss, impotence and loneliness intrude into the images of a powerful and frozen mountain realm.

PYLOD was created between 1997 and 2000. It has received 3 awards and been shown at 24 short film festivals worldwide.
