AA Domisticity part 2

video

Domicticity film was the outcome of the summer course workshop in the AA in 2009.
an imaginative reality that lies on the margin of dystopia. the work was done by 15 students who barely knew each other but managed to find a way to communicate and share ideas.

An extreme imaginative scenario occurs as a result of the continual operation of a city's legislation that initially had aimed to protect its urban environment yet in actual fact ends up producing a completely different type of urban environment and co-habitation. As a speculation it is relevant and also the individual local strategies that are proposed (ways of producing food) are imaginative but also practical. The inhabitants actually have a certain level of pragmatism, collectivism and cooperation that paints a very particular view of the city.
