27,000 objects comprise a composite universe of New-York City reconstructed. This material has been structured into a database accessible with a picture browser. The materials and textures are extracted from the photos and processed through graphic software, compressed and sized for 3D modeling. It is important to state here that there is no filtering of color or any such modification that alters the original picture. The point is to extract the essential "real vibration" in the picture and to preserve it, meaning here the true colors and patterns taken in the precise time and space conditions of the photographs.

The sketches and samples of process steps show the essential use of planes and transparencies to build and animate about everything, from cars to people and buildings.
