“Box of fragments” is one of the segments of the “window on the other ” documentary, written and directed by Emmanuelle Bidou and Catherine Pamart and produced by the caravanserail.

Throughout the documentary, the directors touch on the delicate question of our precarious habitat.

Samuel Berthet is the photogographer.

The “Box of fragments” is constructed from wooden pallets, 3 to 4 copies of each of Samul Berthet’s photographs, pins, needles and shards of mirrors. 

The box is closed and almost totally partitioned, with white holes on the exterior, so that the spectators, by moving around the box, is led to view through each hole, a different vantage point on the same images.

During the public presentation of “window on the other” at the Festival 3 days 2 nights to 26 colors to de Saint-Fargeau Ponthierry , a workshop on resonance with the box to fragmentation was presented to the public. The tools used were a photo of each participant, a cardboard box, scissors, and a mirror. Each participant was led to have his photo to the inside of the box selected, and then to close the box after having done two holes on different sides. Using the mirror serving the artificial light and headed to the interior of one of the holes, each participant has been able to try out the game, particularly by the postmark , overexposure, the deformation, so that ensure the image the most striking visible through the other hole
