Projection of videos on the city walls in Tunis.

3AL7IT is a series of experimental videos based on matter, circulating on social networks (videos, photos, statutes, articles, voice recordings,..) with rushes, filmed by Rim Harrabi, and which has as a theme the stakes and the absurdity of the current crisis. Yasser Jeridi then applies visual and graphic transformations. This visual change gives a form of mutation of the raw material, with its realistic aspect, towards a new, more fluid, more abstract form, a new surrealist state.
This process of visual mutation goes through a succession of graphic stimuli, then further stimuli with the montage, with the aim of reflecting various aspects of the initial material, which is itself a reflection of the constant uncertainty about the future that each individual feels during this unusual, unstable period.
To encourage people to detach themselves from social networks for a small moment of discovery and questioning, and to find a new form of magic through their roof / balcony / window, during this experience which is meant to be enriching and entertaining at the same time, and which gives another vision of all the disturbance experienced during this unusual situation.
