Cosmology of Surfaces

First test of rendering footage on simulated screens. Now to start being more narratively strategic about it as well as the placement of the screens and even their surroundings (room?) etc. … Couldn’t resist a bit of overly-dramatic music in the meantime.

Game of Life

Watch Here

Something that came up in my TS tutorial today. Its pretty amazing how an organisation based on 4 simple rules can both create incredible patterns, which then destroy themselves by overcrowding (eg. 3:03).

I think that the Metropolis should be just as spectacular (if not more) in its destruction as construction – perhaps once the 1km diameter is reached the city and the roof collapse in on the ring, spectacularly destroying both the city and the ring, so that neither the ring nor the city can exist without the other.

Demolition in The Wire

For anyone else who hadn’t seen The Wire (I’m now hooked!), the clip here shows clear similarities to Pruitt-Igoe’s fate.

Set only a few years ago in Baltimore, the series shows that problems of modernist idealism were not limited to a specific location or time. In the clip characters who lived in Franklin Terrace discuss what the demolition of the towers mean to them – a sentimental loss of his home vs. the functional and economical shift of the drugs trade. The mayors words on diligent reform (which no doubt echoes the opening speech from when the towers first went up) are implied to be empty as the lever he presses is fake, used as a signal to the construction workers in charge of the real detonator.
