Machine Space 24' HD 2018

An essay about the making of space, Machine Space uses motifs of circulation and the 'city as spectacle' framed by the windscreen. A poetic narration, assembled from interviews with three residents, speaks of how to move around this city - how it is spatially negotiated, its encoding by racial privilege, and who controls it. A suburban family playing LIFE functions as a Greek chorus, their game an allegory for the city as a fluid, spatial-capital machine.
