Multiscreen Audio-visual Installation.
Five films of varying durations.
Shot on iPhone 6.
The Architect is a five-channel multi-screen audio-visual installation consisting of multiple viewpoints of the physical and social landscape of North-East England, with intermittent and overlapping sounds of industry and situated subjective narrative that have spatial dialogue with each other. The films draw attention to the multifaceted nature of the social realm through the dialogues of a multigenerational family and subsequently raises questions of who built Britain’s system of inequality and who maintains the power dynamics that result in the loss of employment, the housing crisis and the limited opportunities for upward mobility.
