Description Bluer than Blue investigates mechanisms of melancholy and nostalgy of being an individual and meeting an other person. Romantism, existentialism and irony help to open the logic of the work's situations.

There is a video camera, a camera and a third person, "a witness" in the work. Recordind and witnessing refer to the trapping and it's impossibility.
