"Collections" is built on shot taken from documentaries and feature films from the archive.org movie database. All these movies have a public domain licence. Music comes the same website, and is released under creative commons licence.

The rise of huge movie and music databases, publicly available and reusable, gives the opportunity to build some new constructions on little segments, fragments from lost material. Such work is never purely independant from the source material (american movie films, with well identified genre for example), but in the same time, the action of extraction and the choice of the extracted elements si purely personal.

Collections is a piece of personal writing, using images and sounds from the collective memory.
