Forêt Métropolitaine (Metropolitan Forest) is an investigation of the history of one place with a specific identity: the plain of Pierrelaye-Bessancourt (Val-d’Oise). Once a zone for spreading grey water from the capital, the area is now home to the largest reforestation operation undertaken in France in four centuries. After having been buried, the prints reveal the toxicity of the ground. This project accounts for the transformations in the area and the imagination attached to its new destiny: an ultra-connected forest, the green lungs of ‘le Grand Paris.’
