The relationship between architecture, urban environments and the moving image is deep rooted. It is also mutating. Born in the City Symphony films of the early 20th it was premised on the dynamic and mobile representation of buildings, streets and cities. Today, however, moving imagery and architecture coexist in multiple other worlds too: virtual reality spaces explored through headsets and haptic sensors; the animated environments of Second Life; the projection mapping of buildings in physical space; the fantastical settings of the gaming industry; fly-through representations of architectural projects; and the real-time algorithmic formation of parametric architecture on a computer screen.
This complex new scenario will be explored at this event and all its related publications.
This conference is international and interdisciplinary. It welcomes filmmakers, animators, video artists, computer programmers, cinematographers, interior designers, gamers, cultural theorists, architects, urban designers and more.
