1. / About the Project

    As of today, it is estimated that there are more than 7 billion humans living on Earth.

    Humans have only been a glimpse in the Earth’s timeline, yet in the last 200 years the evolution of mankind has skyrocketed as well as the need for Earth’s resources.

    Skyscrapers are growing taller than the next, like huge trees battling for sunlight. At night, from a higher point of view, traffic evokes lava flowing down a volcano.

    Like a giant ant colony, humans have made this planet their own. But what about the Earth? Can we continue to take without consequences? The City Limits tries to show that even though we are the dominant species on the planet, there is something bigger than us.

    In Carl Sagan’s own words “Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us.”

    Human progress and technology are developing at exponential rates but at what cost?

    Where is the city’s limit?

  2. / About the Project

    The remnants of the past are still a significant part of the modern era. Our cultural institutions are the product of those who lived before us and of the societies they built.

    For this project, I travelled to 14 cities in 4 countries filled with history: England, France, Italy and Spain. Each of these countries had a major influence in shaping the world in which we live in.

    In Civilization: The Rise of Europe you will see the remains of the vast Roman Empire, the intertwined Muslim, Christian and Jewish cultures, the birthplace of the Age of Enlightenment, the European emblem of parliamentary democracy as well as many UNESCO World Heritage sites.

    It is also those same countries that would eventually embark on a journey to the New World and build the foundations of America.

    Civilization will make you travel in the past, but also in the present, to show you the enormous steps mankind has made throughout history. Hopefully it will give you awareness of our incredible cultural heritage.

    This was filmed between 29th April and 10th May 2011 in the Arctic, on
    the archipelago Lofoten in Norway.

    My favorite natural phenomenon is one I do not even know the name of, even after talking to meteorologists and astrophysicists I am none the wiser.What I am talking about I have decided to call The Arctic Light and it is a natural phenomenon occurring 2-4 weeks before you can see the Midnight Sun.

    The Sunset and Sunrise are connected in one magnificent show of color and light lasting from 8 to 12 hours. The sun is barely going below the horizon before coming up again. This is the most colorful light that I know, and the main reason I have been going up there for the last 4 years, at the exact
    same time of year, to photograph. Based on previous experience, I knew this was going to be a very
    difficult trip. Having lost a couple of cameras and some other equipment up there before, it was crucial to bring an extra set of everything. I also
    made sure I had plenty of time in case something went wrong.
    If you can imagine roping down mountain cliffs, or jumping around on slippery rocks covered in seaweed with 2 tripods, a rail, a controller,
    camera, lenses, filters and rigging for 4-5 hour long sequences at a time, and then
    having to calculate the rise and fall of the tides in order to capture the essence - it all proved bit of a challenge.

    And almost as if planned, the trip would turn out to become very
    difficult indeed. I had numerous setbacks including: airline lost my
    luggage, struggling to swim ashore after falling into the Arctic sea: twice, breaking lenses, filters, tripod, computer, losing the whole dolly rig and controller into the sea, and even falling off a rather tall rock and ending
    up in the hospital. As much as I wanted to give up, the best way Out is
    always “Through”. I am glad I stuck it through though because there were some amazing sunrises waiting. At 1:06 you see a single scene from day to night to day which is from 9pm to 7am. Think about that for a minute.. 10 hours with light like that.

    I asked the very talented Marika Takeuchi to specifically compose and
    perform a song for this movie, and what she came up with is absolutely remarkable. Thank you very much Marika!
