Michel François is fascinated by the small signs of life, the trivial moments and touches that are bestowed with every appearance of magic at the right time. Beauty is to be found in everyday life, where emotion and astonishment occur. François tries to induce these experiences and to grasp the mobility and the elusiveness of perception. In ‘Hallu’, two hands fold origami models which, thanks to split screen-technique, double out in perfect symmetry. the combination of human dynamism, algorithmic thinking and basic animation effects results in an elegant and gracious game of illusion – a true piece of magic.
