It presents a staging, which creates an ambiguity between a real physical space and a virtual space. There are a camera and a screen presented like a mirror. It reflects the body and face of the viewer. Virtual faces and hands are attracted slowly by this reflection and are trying to touch him, to catch him, to avoid him, to surprise him… These faces and hands have lots of various behaviors and question relationships to the other. They feel the presence and move along the face of the viewer.
