The habitA loop video travels over a residential area. This space is schematically constructed, on the one hand for the people who are displayed as men / women / children carrying on with their everyday activities in a loop, and on the other, for the houses which are all identical. Yet these people are distinct from their surroundings because of their uniform orange color which gives them a two-dimensional appearance. These protagonists continually perform the same actions without these having the slightest effect on their immediate environment. They are just like their space, immaterial and programmed, and in which none of the assembled elements interact with the others. The video also follows this system, that is, it is subject to a repetitive movement. It is a video in which the computer logic appropriates the space, thus creating its own rhythm.
