Mes Coudes sont Noirs


Short Film

A speculative scenario looking at depression and the psychological factors from the social structure through placebo roleplay. When the Asperger syndrome becomes more common between our society and when people have to obtain an extreme belief system to eradicate from their anxiety and depression within our society. More and more people tend to rely on technology to communicate with others but somehow live in it. Therefore, through a critical perspective, Céline designed an object that allows people to use to communicate with objects instead of human and people still need to use their belief system in order to make it function.

We contemporary are used to communication mediated by objects. As the social encounter gradually disappears, the social depression and Asperger syndrome (disorder characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests)pervades and face-to-face communication becomes absent. And the next generations tend to have more decent results of the disorderd as they experienced and learned to communicate via smart phones ever since they were born. In the case the the problem progress, I imagined the dystopian future where the numbers of the previously mentioned disorders grow, then ‘What if…’ people want to communicate with objects rather than human. In the case, I have created a machine which people uses to communicate with objects which reveals in the film. The film starts with the assumption where social interactions have vanished. Due to the unstableness of relationships with people, they now seek for stable interactions with objects.
