These experiments for Baes’s stop motion film ‘46 bis, rue de Belleville’ are an art work in its own right. The stop motion technique he uses belongs to the realm of animation. He never handles the camera in an obvious way, but shoots frame per frame in order to come up with a dreamlike staccato effect. With ‘Test’ Pascal Baes sets up his trademark: a low-tech edition of the time-lapse photography, applied to choreography.
