Le nageur vient de terminer ses heures d’entrainement quotidiennes, il se tire de l’eau et s’assoit sur le bord de la piscine. Timothy respire fort, son abdomen se gonfle et se dégonfle en cadence. Petit à petit, ses muscles se relâchent, son coeur bat moins fort, Timothy s’endort presque. Ces neuf minutes de film sont projetées en boucle. Interminablement, elles rejouent l’apogée puis l’apaisement de l’acte amoureux.

" At 5:30 when nothing could bring you down, at that point the music is always good, there's plenty of room on the dance floor, and only the serious discoers are left. But best of all your body has quit resisting. It has unstoppable momentum. That is the one thing about disco comparable to any other experience. (...) You pass a point where you're beyond tired, beyond pain, beyond even thinking about stopping, thinking only that this could go on forever and you'd love it. It's pure ecstasy."

Douglas Crimp, DISSS-CO (A FRAGMENT) from Before Pictures, a Memoir of 1970s New York.
