Invisible Cities

2005-2009

The film project ‘Invisible Cities’ started in 2006 during my residency at HIAP, in the ex Nokia factory. The project portrays some of the major international European harbours, including Helsinki, Antwerp, Rotterdam and it is shown in the exhibition space as a four screens video projection. In ‘Invisible Cities’ I portray the harbours as mechanzied architectures with no human being in sight, showing the back stage of the endless global trade by sea. The subtle shift of shipping containers, performed by a set of frictionless and silent theatrical megastructures, suggests a continuous spatial flow and the drifting appeal of these fluid territories.
