A still 20 second motion video framing the intimate setting of a voyeuristic perspective.
In the era of mass standardisation, where buildings look more alike than they look different, it's an individual’s day-to-day habits that set each city apart. Since buildings nowadays share the same "looks", now more than ever it’s up to the cities inhabitants to changethe way the city looks like and how each space is being perceived in the context of its urban setting.
“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. Until now, the project has managed to catch frames from Romania, Israel, Turkey, Serbia, Bulgaria, Italy, France and Australia. But we figured out we can’t make it on our own, so here is where YOU come in. The first step in creating the database is to have as many videos as possible from around the world. Thus, we created the @city.frame Instagram page. Contribute to the project by posting a 20 second video using the #cityframe | #ctfrm.
No filters, post production, directors intervention or scripts, just raw unexpected life.
