Trace of life

Watch the snail’s slow wandering turn into a furrow of light. This strange animal, very different from our anatomy, prompts us to reconsider our need for speed and productivity: what if we imagine progress that takes its time, rather than innovation driven by speculation? The work echoes the theory of Ivan Illich, this thinker who explained in the 1970s that a bicycle is much faster than a car, if we take into account the time spent working to pay for the vehicle. in the calculation of kilometers traveled.
