‘We are made to feel inertia, the drabness of time. Time is not just a neutral, light medium within which things happen. We feel the density of time itself.’
– Andrei Tarkovsky on his film Stalker, 1975

On Architecture, 2016
Short film, computer animation, footage, found audio, 6 min.
‘On Architecture’ is an experimental film about architecture as an artistic practice, as well as the result of a personal research to what architecture actually is. What defines this discipline? The various opinions on architecture depicted in the film could be applied to the video itself or architecture in general.
Borrowed audio (found in videos online, where contemporary architects explain their architectural vision) supports filmed footage and digital animated scenes.
