 Building Icons-2"35'

 

Building Icons uses found footage, which documents the construction of iconic buildings.

Architecture addresses the social field – These construction sites are buildings in progress, they are not inhabited nor by the people who sponsored their construction nor by their future tenants, but by its construction workers. The relations between each of these groups and the buildings are of different social and political function. I am focusing on the deconstruction of these relations. With that in mind I separate the workers figures from the industrial landscape rendering them in two different projection screens.
