    Experimental, Short

    A sequence of likely urban architecture is represented from a long running-shot, doubled in a mirror effect. In this video, only the floating architectures are visible: that creates a landscape which seems real and impossible, at the same time.

    Director's Statement

    Creating a vision which is, both a dialectical and essential analysis of reality and a look on it as a dynamic entity: a system in progress and open to every solution. This video puts together two antithetical ideas: representing and hiding.

    Our work is moving along an ideal border-line, the one of meaning, which articulates the difference between possibility and impossibility, between movement and pose (pause).
