A work by Pia de la Plaine and Anne Cortey that uses interactive collages to provide educational content in the form of an amusing story.

Les montagnes is an educational and amusing narrative for telephones, tablets, and consoles that uses interactive collages. It tells a tale – a metaphorical account of the transition from childhood to adulthood – and conveys images of a collage world that the viewer is invited to shape.

It’s the story of a young girl who sets off on a great journey.

Here, there are no Instagram photos, no hashtags, or selfies in front of the Machu Picchu or the Great Wall of China. It’s an intimate journey. It takes place in the heart of inner steppes, mountains of souvenirs, dreamed-up roads, and imaginary seas. The viewer is invited to take part in this adventure, to navigate through its landscape and make it his own. He explores at his own rhythm and, thanks to the collage technique, shapes things according to his own desires.

At the end of the journey, he enjoys a dip in the water, a poetic dive into live.
