Spheres of Desire
collaboration w/ brian levi bowman
this speculative project for a future leisure-oriented urban arcology, culminated in the development of a 3 minute animation which was premiered at ResFest 2005 and was exhibited around the world.
the project proposes an urban environment that mixes surveillance, leisure, physical, and virtual to create a vision that is both urban and suburban. with a central premise of the project being that the architecture's performance mirrors that of it's inhabitant, the narrative of the film's inhabitants becomes a diagram for the urban environment itself.
through a mix of humor and intellect the project attempts to suggest a future that is both utopian and subtly sinister. a clear commentary on our current obsessions with fitness and efficiency.
