” There is a mode of vital experience – experience of space and time, of the self and others, of life’s possibilities and perils – that is shared by men and women all over the world today. I will call this body of experience “modernity.” To be modern is to find ourselves in an environment that promises us adventure, power, joy, growth, transformation of ourselves and the world – and, at the same time, that threatens to destroy everything we have, everything we know, everything we are ” MARSHALL BERMAN , 1982

This is a visual document that addresses the concepts of the city, modernity, urban planning and memory from a poetic perspective. Skyscrapers are portrayed as immense receptacles of memories, symbols of the power of cities: figuratively stepping inside these buildings, imagining the different forms of human existence, speculating on the virtues and miseries concealed in the privacy of each home. The piece is articulated by narratives based on personal experiences, autobiographical details, real facts and cultural and social events, questioning and fictionalising time and life itself in the never-ending process of construction and collapse.

The series consists of diferents videos with a run time of 3 to 4 minutes each. Each video is a close-up panning shot of a skyscraper, scanned from bottom to top in a very slow vertical camera movement.

Texts written by different authors for this specific project traverse and strike up a dialogue with each of the skyscrapers.

Musical scores keep pace with the image, attempting to establish a dynamic bond with it. Music is also a fundamental element in the work as it interacts with the image and texts and enhances the piece’s aesthetic and sensory aspects.
