Metropolis" Metropolis, the worlds collide,
Ain't nobody could be on your side,
I don't care, I don't care
Metropolis is something new,
Ain't nobody got their eye on you,
I don't care, I don't care
Metropolis, the worlds collide,
Ain't nobody on the other side,
I don't care, I'm not there.

La Ville Science-Fiction est un paysage hostile.
Les défauts de notre condition urbaine moderne (ségrégation, contrôle, violence, pollution…)sʼy trouvent hypertrophiés. Le projet Futuropolis est dédié à la représentation de cette ville extrême: unegated communityconçue pour le divertissement, autosuffisante et construite au milieu de lʼocéan, la ZAD de Notre-Dame-des-Landes investie par desaliensécologistes et des CRS robots, le Paris postdiluvien…
Comme souvent dans le travail de Paul Loubet, le sujet de société rencontre les références ludiques, mettant en avant lʼambiguïté des futurs dystopiques, à la fois cauchemars de mondes inhabitables et rêves dʼaventures inconnues.
