Vertige is one of three new works commissioned by comédie de caen for le tabularium from achive footage of the planning, construction and development of hérouville-saint-clair. The audio in Vertige is samples from the narration of  Alain Resnais ’s Toute la mémoire du monde, which is about the organisation of the Bibliothèque Nationale (national library) from which I removed all references to the word Livre (book). The video is a reflection on utopian ideas of archive, organisation and architecture.
