Out of the Machine
Matrix City Screening #3
The mounting pressure of an urban living has an impact on those who fall out of the urban machine – or consciously decide to depart from it.
On the other side, the pervasiveness of technology recreates Rousseauian dreams of an innocent nature and spiritual living. This program presents the positions, practices and imaginations about non-urbanity and urban voids, exploring the supposed opposition between nature and city.In some speculations, areas of Europe and North-America which cannot contribute to the ongoing production of urbanization (shrinking cities, imploding communities) will soon find themselves off the map and on their own.
