This artistic training activity invites participants to immerse themselves in the multicolored universes of the images they bring from home. Using photographs or drawings of windows, stained glass, skylights or colored objects, the participants will create a color plate. After the spotlight is turned on, it will unveil the appearance of these bodies-beings. Subsequently, a shattered magic lantern will be ready to be set up and occupied by the movement of the participants. In this space of image composition from memory, stories of unknown animals, bodies that change color and algae that sparkle in the dark will appear.
