Following the spirit of the CityFiction Series, in which I distorted digital photographs of this-world cities,
the Extract series are the first path leading to pictures of fully fictional cities.
It is a start-from-scratch in terms of tools and technique : I needed to find the necessary raw materials to
build my own cityscapes.
Think about the sand used to make glass and concrete, then buildings.
The Extract Series are a set of pixels samples and textures I can build digital buildings with.
There are like an extraction process, but instead of minerals from the Earth's crust, this is about
extracting an aesthetic from my visions.
Hence this series are dark, since you have to dig deep to find those nuggets.
