For the making of La Région Centrale, conceptual artist Michael Snow had a special camera constructed by a technician at the National Film Board in Canada. Designed to automate the recording of a remote mountain landscape in Northern Quebec, the 16-mm camera was programmed to move in multiple directions --  horizontally, vertically, laterally, or in a spiral -- and at varying speeds. The film informs David Hartt’s approach to landscape in The Histories (Le Mancenillier).
