Through its cultural and artistic influence, the city of Venice has marked many centuries of history. However, it is being weakened by the massive influx of tourist and global warming and tends to be becoming the mere scenery of its own representation.

While filming Venice using fixed shots, I built a database. Distancing myself from the frozen iconography of the city, I extracted images from its daily life as it unfolded.

The resulting Subjective Archive is the experience of a singular stroll recounted via a web platform: a voluntarily partial and subjective archive about Venice everyday life and the Venetians.
