Slow Space. 2006. 72min. 16mm
Slow Space takes the viewer on a visual trip
through places of glass architecture in filmed
entirely within the urban constructed environment
of Chicago. Slow Space is a visually arresting
investigation into how space is described,
defined and ultimately experienced. The filmmaker
commutes this relationship with the outside
'world' via an array of constructed
transparencies in the glass domes and atriums
that formed so much of architecture's modernist

Center of Urban Periphery. ("Stadtrandzone Mitte") 2005. 43min. Video.
"What is public space today?" The filmmaker poses
this question at the beginning of his research
with reference to the city of Hannover. The
resulting film takes the viewer on a trip through
a number of public spaces in Hannover´s
metropolitan area. Devised as a series of
portraits with varying urban qualities,the film
dwells not only on the visible urban attributes
but also on the activities and connectedness that
´make-up´ a public space. Undertaking an array of
spatial explorations, the film seeks to find out
as to what kinds of interference or interventions
can activate public place(s).
