A fact : there's nothing left.
Billions hours of moving images : only pieces. Some blur on VHS, digital compressions with pixels as big as a thumb (mutations, anthills) ; strips of roll where, here and there, we can find a few private stocks classified according to very specific obsessions.

No hierarchy, just bare fragments with more or less fanciful captions. Some true, some false. Out of context.
Why is this woman walking backwards? Helicopters smelling of napalm, women having bath in the open air, an important man untouched on the kodachrome etc...

There is no before, no after, we are a long way into the future and we are just watching 88 independent time fragments.
