Two fencers use “selfie sticks” as foil and have a fencing fight. The cameras of the smartphones on the end of selfie sticks record and transmit the two fencers’ performance in a low-quality moving image to the large screen in real-time.


The terms of fencing and photography are extended and integrated with the noise generated by the friction and collision of two fencers’ selfie sticks. Symbolized the fight of bodies and the conflicts of images that are transferred to physical closeness and digital touches.

Fencer:Laurent Bailly and Anne-Elisabeth Fontaine

Arbitre:YAO Qingmei
