Concrete: Boston City Hall

Rental Format(s): Digital File

I return to the idea of "ma" empty or open spaces (interval or pause in time).Traditionally, Chinese and Japanese aesthetic principles, reflecting Buddhist spatial ideas, focus on the use of empty or open spaces ("ma" in Japanese). During the pandemic, drones flying over the empty city became an over-saturated media coverage fixed our imagination into one way of reading a city/ space. The newest piece, titled Concrete: Boston City Hall, was created with this additional perspective and creates a contrast to legendary documentary filmmaker, Frederick Wiseman's four-hour long film, City Hall. Here I try to present the meditational quality of the empty city hall, The project was presented by local art organization Non-Event with support from MCC (the Massachusetts Cultural Council).
