« From the invention of photography, 3D process have been developed. Long before the movie, there was stereoscopy invented in 1838 by Charles Wheatstone and

anaglyph process developed by Ducos du Hauron in 1891. Despite the dominant discourse, virtual reality is not new. The vast majority has forgotten this and Mireille Loup reactivates this memory by reintroducing this photographic technique in a contemporary work. Thus, she pays homage to the ancestors of photography and adds its contribution to that dream. Invited by the General Council of the Oise to reappropriate the stereoscopic stereoscopic pictures
of Charles Commessy (1856-1941) kept in the departmental archives of the Oise, Mireille Loup revisits, interprets the art of this photographer and this technology, with new resources. By voluntarily taking up the anaglyph process, as old, archaic, which has an old hand, she tries to make us aware that we will never achieve a perfect double of the world.»

Invited again, this time by the Musée de la Camargue, Mireille Loup starts the project again, with 5 emblematic figures.

"The “Fous du Rhône” are passionate about the violence of the river, its light and its tragedies. Some excavate, search, dig in order to understand and write its story. They map how it moved over the centuries, the traces it has left in the soil and the landscape, archaeological sites, shipwrecks, antique objects rolled in the mud. Others are simply attached to the Rhône because of a story that brought them there, where they have chosen to stay to watch the daily life of the river, watch over its smallest shivering as if bewitched by its presence." Estelle Rouquette, curator of the Musée de la Camargue.
