The video Plans par couleur is a fixed plan made up of a succession of loops. The first plan describes a peripheral zone of circulation. The passage of the first in the second plan clarifies the artistic gesture of the taking away in this landscape and more particularly in the architectural graphic design of a palisade. The following plans, built on the mode of the variation, reveal this same gesture of taking away, but this time in the advertising graphic design of panels with plates tri-visions. The representation in plans (map) and the visual phenomenon recorded by the camera, projected then on the screen, introduced a dialogue with the abstraction and reveal the passage of the « painting window » to a "painting screen". The video also questions the border between the fixed image and the image moving. The sound, in catch direct, and associated to each loop introduces an except field.
