Welcome to Reflet.



Reflet is the story of a small village lost in the middle of surrounding plains. It’s up to you to construct your own narrative, to follow the inhabitants through the 15 different locations, and to discover the secrets they keep.



  • This village is a digital space inside which you can move around freely. Use your arrow keys ← and → to navigate from place to place.
  • To keep track of your location, you can consult the village map in the "Where am I ?" tab.
  • The Reflet villagers live in real time and independently. Their history repeats itself every 24 hours. If you missed something, you can come back another day at the same time to watch it unfold again.
  • Once a character starts to move within the village, it takes about 1 minute for them to reach their destination. If, after 1 minute, they are not present at the location to which they were headed, it’s because they decided to go somewhere else, invisible to you.

Where am I ?
Damien JIBERT received his National Diploma in Visual Arts in 2014 at the EMA Fructidor, an art school situated in the city of Chalon-sur-Saône. He quickly developed an interest in video and animation, which together made him begin to question his own reality. He has participated in several festivals, namely the Sosh aime les inRocks Lab video production contest, where he took the Special Prize for his work Journal.

Pablo ALBANDEA has a master’s degree in film and audiovisual research, which he received in 2015 at the Panthéon-Sorbonne university in Paris. His training led him to become a VJ (Video Jockey) and to examine the relational aspects that make up today’s images. He also uses his time to create clips for different artists, notably Lëster, with whom he collaborates regularly.

Damien and Pablo started working together at an early age, and developed common interests, ranging from classical cinema to Internet culture and video games, all thanks to a small film club called the Cinemaclachlan. The world inside Reflet is a narrative space as well as a contemplative one. It functions as a perpetual, mechanical, and digital unit, in which the characters evolve according to planned, repetitive actions. The perception of time is different inside Reflet and can be approached in two differents ways : stopping in on occasion, or staying connected for long periods of time to observe.

The relational element is also important in Reflet. The exchanging of ideas and the carrying out of discussions between users in regards to characters, places and music, or one’s own experience in general, is an important part of the project. In short, users are building a connection between the digital world of Reflet and the real world of human interaction.

Reflet was in the Hors Pistes 2015 Festival programmation in the Centre Pompidou.
