A new river is designed by natural elements and human intervention. Following the restoration of the Aire river in Geneva, Superpositions evokes the sensation of a journey along the course of the river during its evolution. A landscape project by the Superposition Group led by swiss architect Georges Descombes. A video directed by Michel Favre, 2014.

The video Superpositions, 2014 offers a sensory immersion across the streams of Geneva, during the extensive water works which took place in 2014 which involved redirecting the water channel back to its original path.
