Visage du Temps by Sammy Stein

In 17 stories of varying length, Sammy Stein offers to stroll through imaginary museums ("The Turtle Museum", "Archives of the crystal museum"), to visit dream collections ("Faces of time", "Multimonde"), pays homage to an obscure artist whose work has almost entirely disappeared ("Salut Marcel"), summons memories of a fictitious place and its artefacts (“Galerie 128”, “Retour vers le center”), describes an impossible work (“Fireworks”), observes the process of transformation from one form into another (“Moving sculpture” , “Camouflage”, “Bye bye Dada”), and even evokes fantastic cooking recipes (“Le grand restaurant”, episodes 1 and 2).
