There are already many films about artists' studios. This one, in particular, is about the studio of a philosopher. He is a philosopher who, singularly, constructs his thoughts in front of our eyes, by hand, using tools that he has forged. (...-
It is not a film project in the sense that, one day, we have decided "to make a film" together, because we had the opportunity to do so. First and foremost, it is about making the work in progress more tangible and finding ourselves, each, with his tools in hand. So, we gather around the big sewing table that is a working table, but becomes, for this occasion, our "table of contents" gathering all these images that will be used for texts, conferences and exhibitions.
We proposed to film for two to three days a year, for several years. We never prepare for the filming. The artifice that consists of re-staging the work is never an option. It is the work itself that decides, takes the stage, and imposes its temporality. 
We strive for an open apparatus. (…) We release a butterfly in the camera field. We give it free rein, we give ourselves free rein, we give the spectator free rein; so that he can feel like a third person, our alter ego, around this table ... invitation to watch our work diary, trying to answer the delicate question: how to film the work of a thought?
Henri Herré and Georges Didi-Huberman
