Rachid (from the Safe and Sound Poster Series) is a single-channel video portrait. Inspired by the screen tests of Andy Warhol, the camera challenges the protagonist with flickering strobe and tinted red and blue lights. The sound follows the image: the soundtrack starts as an alarming siren and quickly transforms into a techno track. The image is projected on retro-reflective fabric, creating a boomerang effect: the strobe lights that hit the screen, also bounce back at the viewer.
