On 28 May 2019, just after midnight, I arrived on rue Daguerre, wanting to pay respects to the late filmmaker Agnès Varda, who had died one month before. These scenes are from her street, her home, and her graveside that day.

Yes Gabriel – Dear to Me (2018)

"When I am lain, am lain in earth,
May my wrongs create no trouble, 
No trouble in my breast."
Music: Nick Hudson Film: KFE

“Mais les vrais voyageurs sont ceux-là seuls qui partent Pour partir; coeurs légers, semblables aux ballons, De leur fatalité jamais ils ne s’écartent, Et, sans savoir pourquoi, disent toujours: Allons! Ceux-là dont les désirs ont la forme des nues, Et qui rêvent, ainsi qu’un conscrit le canon, De vastes voluptés, changeantes, inconnues, Et dont l’esprit humain n’a jamais su le nom!” – Baudelaire

when dusk falls, garden grottos burst into flame, sculptures clank into motion, and music grows on trees vid by K music (as recorded from trees) by Yuka Okazaki
