A Tale of 10.000 cities
A Tale of 10.000 cities is a script that generates many possible movies written with code, sound and architecture about human experiences of inhabiting cities.
Architecture is used as a material, an alphabet with which a language is constructed. Code is incorporated into the structure of the stories, it becomes its grammar. This project is about what happens when a language is hybridised with another.
The video installation is a spatial translation of the project, in which you never visit the city of the person sitting next to you.
