It’s a suite of black and white landscapes from Montreal, Vancouver, Toronto, New York, Amsterdam, Paris, London, Berlin and Hamburg, each presenting a poetic suggestion from Karoline Georges, in French, integrated into the urban environment. Here, both real footage and pure virtuality combine to create a new poetry land.
