Ivy is a famous and adored singer, but her glory comes from an "unnatural" cause. How did she get that power, and can she get rid of it?
Ivy est une chanteuse célèbre et adulée, mais sa gloire n'a pas une origine tout à fait "naturelle". Comment a-t-elle acquis son pouvoir et peut-elle y échapper ?


I make short stories by picking up arbitrary pictures on Flickr (under Creative commons license). Then I try to imagine the story that goes with them.

Ivy was my first project.

Je travaille à partir d'images sélectionnées de façon arbitraire sur Flickr (sous licences Creative Commons) à l'aide d'un mot-clé choisi selon l'inspiration du moment. J'essaie ensuite d'imaginer l'histoire racontée par ces images...

Ivy était mon tout premier projet avec cette méthode.


  • 1 078 words (about 10 minutes reading) / 1 070 mots (une dizaine de minutes de lecture)
