The title is a contraction of the words "urban" and "organic". Built according to a play and a questioning on the concept of perception, the images produce enactments of dialogues or breaks between two different and opposite spaces. In the foreground, a dense vegetation forms a framework in the frame. In a variable way, this alive space appears either as a set rich in details and information, or as a dark and uniform plan. The spectator can for example consider this vegetable zone like a window, a curtain which opens on urban space and to enter it gradually by plans, layers, stages. Or on the contrary, this part of the image can be apprehended like a screen which masks or makes disappear the city in the background, and to create the illusion which the organic matter invades and takes again control on the spaces invested by the human being.
