A Sign For The City

2013
Seen from above the gridded streets of Buenos Aires are logical, but the City also exists for me in vertical layers. The film was made during the URRA residency. The billboard is in the process of being dismantled, it was custom made, welded and fitted onto the building. At this high level the sign had to be big, a shout that was a whisper at ground level. With no function the billboard is a sculptural object and the camera explores the structure in the dying light of the sun that sets and rises around it, an unstoppable measure of slow time passing.
