Histoire(s) is a network of groupings and possible connections all of them in movement. The networks are of two kinds. One is spatial and topological, an effect of layering where points of contact as well as gaps, emptiness and breaks are visible. The vertical layers tend to be transparent, like fades and superimpositions. The layering is a matter of positions, even the slightest change or variation alters everything.

The other network is temporal, not progressive as in a narrative dependent on the development of a drama, scene, character, or theme as consequence or causation, nor progressive simply by the linearity inherent in the projection of a film. The sense of succession is instead primarily one of possible connectives, sometimes horizontal, more often circular and associative, frequently returning, retracing, interrupting, digressing, in any case, constantly reconfigured.
