**Abstract.**

How can we reconstruct a domain when we know it only on a finite number of slices? In the plane, given a family of segments, we search the "best" set inclosing these segments. In the usual space, the question is the same with a family of planar sections. First, by "the best set" we mean one which minimises one of the following geometrical energies: its perimeter or the Willmore energy of its boundary. We will see that the theorical problem is not well posed but a numerical phase-field approximation seems to give an answer... an unexpected solution. For the perimeter, this solution does not "really" fit the slices. I will explain why we have this solution and how we can slighty modify the phase field scheme to have what we expect. I will give all (intuitive) definitions of concepts I use in this talk, especially the phase-field model, and we will apply this reconstruction to movie interpolation...
