I thank my friend artist, curator Jeanne Gillard for making herself available as a performer in this video.

I thank my friend photographer Sandra Pointet for supporting me technically in the realization of this video and for offering her studio as well as her technical expertise for a friendship price.

I thank my husband Fred Sumi composer, bass player, and producer for supporting me in the sound production.
