Collapscapes is an El Ultimo Grito_POI project that describes constructs which artificially compress time and space in order to assist production. In doing so, Collapscapes generate a new sense place, with distinct rhythms different from those found naturally. Early industrial models are based on this principle, where distant activities are brought together into a new artificial/mechanised/technologised internal organisms which was reflected by its construction.
Collapscapes as a project reflects on this observation and explores the narrative possibilities of systems. How systems develop their own language of system that allows to engage in the reality or construct that they are describing. And then in particular will analyze the film industry and the golden age of the studio culture as constructed collapscapes as an orderly assemblage of diverse times and places. Inside which you could time travel from Manhattan to the Roman circus or the Far West. The collapscape is not the product of cinema and its narrative logic but of its industrialisation. Collapscapes is a two part exhibition: Part 1 with [Senne], Brussels and Part 2 with Design Project Room, HEAD_Genéve.
Part 2 at Design Project Room, HEAD_Genéve. Examining the industry and language of cinema, it concentrates in its construction and the connection between its apparatus and the breakage of the space and time continuum of a narrative. The exhibition had an experimental character, exploring new projection methods that brought a different sense of three-dimensionality to the cinematic experience and narrative construction. It also included the first presentation of Socrates, a specially designed dialogue writing software.
