Pocket Theatre, 2007, 12 minutes

12 Dec 2009 - 27 Dec 2009

A magician pulls seemingly random images from his pocket, including family photographs, playing cards and film stills, arranging and rearranging them in mid air. Inspired by the 1930’s magician Arthur Lloyd (the so-called Human Card Index), Froment plays with illusion and the authority of visual communication.
