Experiencing Interruptions?

Synecdoche Turin

It’s often a sense of shakiness which emerges in seeking affordable rent. Furthermore, leasing real estate in the time of Covid it’s enough though enterprise due to the different restrictions in moving freely and without any fear even visiting the venue, still not to mention the angst before the future that a change in life like a relocation involves so that everything starts spinning around.

The images of the work have been recorded with a special technique in order to extract, manipulate and edit the footage of virtual tours, to be then recomposed in a unique video artwork combined with an original music soundtrack of the collective. The goal of the work is to unleash the power of abandoned houses and transform them into something alive. Reflecting pulsing moving images art to the heartbeat of the reborn building...
