So as a group we were talking about layering and I came across this architecture team in Athens who made this video with layering different types of representations of Athens.
‘The goal of linking the present data to their past memory will be achieved using as a tool the multiple layering of
–text: describing Athen’s historical data, flows of people and sounds, litterature extracts
–image: buildings and streets in Athens then and now
–visual compositions in response to the urban imaginary
–audio: material collected from the contemporary city.’
How they made the video and the meaning behind it is on this site :
and here’s the video :
I think it’s pretty interesting.. I mean the idea of recording the city noise and layering it with pictures and perhaps maps and creating this abstract thing..
I really love the final effect and as a group we are hoping to achieve something similar. We want our final piece to be very visual.
