The ‘Root City’ series brings together the image of an emerging ecological modern city and our utopian vision of the protective legendary cities, as imagined by our ancestors in various mythologies (such as Kitej, Iram, If, Norumbega, Atlantis, etc).
When Science-fiction meets Symbolism and in the tradition of artists as diverse as Hieronymus Bosch, Gustave Moreau, Moebius, Frédéric Daty synthesizes the dreamlike vision of a city - submarine with Kitej - but also cloud cities, fabulous merchant cities... which are self-managing, regenerating and recreate the link between nature and technology.
