Back when I worked as a graphic designer in a trend agency, somebody was needed to produce a video for Chanel. I’d never even looked at a video software, let alone After-Effects, but I said I’d do it. I had only two weeks to get up speed but by then I was good enough to do what was asked. And I adored it. So I kept on and made several art videos for myself which were displayed in cultural centers, bars, a Parisian gallery, and the Pompidou Centre. One of these videos was also included in a DVD compilation of video art. As everyone asked me to keep on with the same line of work, I quit.
