"At the age of seventeen,
I worked on the fantastic, on what I called "le fantastic naturel".
Starting from automatic writing and the mental images of which I found the
equivalences in Nature, I closed the first circle.
Then I realized a fantastic work from natural, realist sources, for entering the world of imagination. I closed the second circle.
I created a fantastic work inspired by a realistic source. I liked the notion of Roger Caillois of the "fantastique rationnel": the foundation of a generalized poetics. As Caillois writes: "the same postulates, the same methods organize inert material, the rigor of the sciences, the drift of a reverie."
