This virtual reality installation brought to life the industrial heritage of Boulogne-Billancourt, a town in the western suburbs of Paris. Juxtaposing layers of images from the present day and computer-generated images in 2D and 3D, with portraits of the town's development as a center for the automobile industry in the 19th century and cinema in early 20th century, Growth & Mutations offers a fresh look at this city of the modern era.
