In our mobile society some families move a lot, and children have to make new friends just when they are becoming comfortable with the ones they have.

Fluxes( Visual )

2 editions published between 1967 and 2000 in French and English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fluxes est l'une des multiples reconstitutions possibles d'un monde fragmenté par la technologie. Comme à la télévision, les images sont froides, toutes égales en importance, choix ironique des circonstances. Une sorte de magma sonore contemporain s'y superpose, créant avec elles des rapports baroques, dérisoires et signifiants. <<Notre seule moralité est de survivre>> émet une voix d'une autre planète. Il semble que ce soit aussi le cas sur cette terre de robots, de machines surproductrices et d'ordinateurs, où l'homme est devenu le cobaye de ses propres expériences
