In the era of mass standardisation, where buildings look more alike than they look different, it's an individual’s life and habits which set each city apart. Buildings may share the same "looks", a sky scraper in Tel Aviv is no different than one in Istanbul, a residential building in Bucharest may be confused with one in Paris. It is now up to the cities inhabitants to change the way the city looks like and how each building is being perceived in the context of its urban setting.
Until now, the project has managed to catch and frame glimpses from Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Ein Hod, Caesarea as well as Bethlehem and Jericho. All the presented video footage, exposes a raw unedited 20 second still video.
“It’s a gamble every time we set our frames, since we do not know beforehand what the outcome of the video will be. Thus we had some spectacular surprises while filming in the Walled Off Hotel and in center Tel Aviv.”
The project’s aim is to create a database of 20 second still videos from around the world embracing different predictable or extraordinary urban scenes.
A still 20 second motion video framing the intimate setting of a voyeuristic perspective.
No filters, post production, directors intervention or scripts, just raw unexpected life.
