Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore, Mark Leckey


Quote:
Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore uses found and original footage of discos and raves across Britain during the 70s, 80s and 90s. Details of clothing, technology, music and other cultural references surface briefly like uncanny folklore as the film explores a culture of collective leisure and consumption

Remodelling work lasted two years. The factory, abandoned and partially in ruins, was a compendium of surrealist elements: stairs that climbed up to nowhere, mighty reinforced concrete structures that sustained nothing, pieces of iron hanging in the air, huge empty spaces filled nonetheless with magic.

Pictures are worth blowing up, as you probably won't really be able to figure out what's going on otherwise.

Trompe l'oeil everything, you pay for a suite you get a broom closet with cleverly placed mirrors.

They have some of the trompe l'oeil doors at the MMM stores and you can even buy them. I briefly entertained the idea of getting a door before a crushing feeling of shame washed over me.

This TED talk, about "building unimaginable shapes," is pretty interesting. The idea is to design the process rather than the final outcome. The focus on process is reminiscent of Aitor Throup to me, though there are plenty of obvious differences. If you're impatient, you can skip to the end and look at the columns they actually created (with 3D printers).

Adieu (Arnaud des Pallières, 2003)

The "whale" comes to be the Air France plane that takes Ismaël and other attempted refugees back to Algeria, but more intentionally by the director the whale is any cargo truck that carries clandestine refugees from a poor country into a rich one.

[...] 'Adieu' is a long, intentionally solemn and disturbing meditation on death, the existence of God, the existence of evil in the world (whereupon even insect behavior -- a very relevant consideration -- is brought into the discussion), and (an especially pressing manifestation of that evil) the international class system by which certain people are non-persons and certain countries are de facto judged as inferior for arbitrary economic reasons.
