As a first step towards this resolution we chose to confront ourselves to some other
hypothesis of resolution (H). The group headed to theTate Modern. Our curiosity for this

The first work of art that caught our attention was Tiny Death by Bill Viola.
The body of the spectator find itselves in a totaly black box where the senses have to
split and investigate. The eyes couldn't tell the sort of volume they were in. The ears

a concept to.
Then sudenly a man appeared on the left side of the cub we where in and in a fast and
sunden flash of light he vanished to reapear a few seconds (s) later on the oposite side.
