Ceci n`est pas un jouet

The video comes through a small thing in decreased time. A hand colored with bright red nails turns to a small music box, red detail too slowly. Red is like painting. Hands on a micro-performance turning the small instrument form a precise design. Time flows during the song that Edith Piaf singing Paris, adds to the atmosphere of color. In the box that holds the music box is written “this is not a game”. I appropriate to me this warning, contradicting her during the video. This is because art, in this case found, is pleasure and play.
