Film screening within the Sounds of these Waves by David J. Lieberman, guest professor in the Institute for Art and Architecture.

The three-hour film is a series of visual texts as an investigation in time, in thoughts and in dreams as we move through the spaces of discovery and imagining. The texts interweave original musings and the words of Virginia Woolf in her meditations “The Waves”. The film premiered at Xenakis Continuum in Cyprus in June 2016.

The proposition seeks through the choreography of movement, sound, and light to investigate the nature of space in its poetic and emotive qualities and to articulately craft the boundaries and limits through the use of specific materiality, fabrications, and assemblies, the architecture of contemporary cultural practice and political expression, an architecture determined by its occupancy and use.

Research of theme, of context both physical and intellectual, and of compositional intent is an act of drawing as thinking, interrogating the ideas and concepts of building and the constructed landscape of the city in twenty first century, the age of the Anthropocene.

to draw makes manifest and possible that which we cannot see or hear

to draw and to construct is to contain and to be pleasured by the temporality of pause

in movement through time and through space

at the edges of sound and light

the waves broke on the shore

The work is screened on a loop during opening hours.
