THE BRIEF

CINECITY 2011 Architecture & Film Workshops: Spatial Ideas Explored in One Minute Films

SONA CINECITY WORKSHOP BRIEF 2011: In 2011 SONA & CINECITY present the workshop films at the Australian Institute of Architect’s National Conference in Melbourne 14 to 16 April.

NATURAL ARTIFICE

  • The theme of the conference this year is “natural artifice” and it this that will be explored in the films.
    “While humankind is as reliant as ever on nature, our experience of what is “natural” is mediated by technology. From birth, this artifice is intrinsic in all encounters with nature. There are amazing results now evident in a world where designers are apprehending the powerful relationship between that which is natural and that which is artificial in a contemporary and meaningful way for our time.” Juhani Pallasmaa

THE BRIEF: NATURAL ARTIFICE

  •  The films will explore the idea of natural artifice: The inspiration for your film will start from the ideas explored by the international speakers at the National Conference.
     As Juhani Pallasmaa has engaged with ideas of architecture and cinema you may wish to explore his essay “Lived Space in Architecture and Cinema” as a starting point for the inspiration for your film. The essay can be found at:
    http://www.ucalgary.ca/ev/designresearch/publications/insitu/copy/volume2/imprintable_architecture/Juhani_Pallasmaa/index.html
     The film will communicate /question /explore – an architectural idea about space and how we experience this space.

THE PARAMETERS
