Slow Space. 2006. 72min. 16mm
Slow Space takes the viewer on a visual trip 
through places of glass architecture in filmed 
entirely within the urban constructed environment 
of Chicago. Slow Space is a visually arresting 
investigation into how space is described, 
defined and ultimately experienced. The filmmaker 
commutes this relationship with the outside 
'world' via an array of constructed

Center of Urban Periphery. ("Stadtrandzone Mitte") 2005. 43min. Video.
"What is public space today?" The filmmaker poses 
this question at the beginning of his research 
with reference to the city of Hannover. The 
resulting film takes the viewer on a trip through 
a number of public spaces in Hannover´s 
metropolitan area. Devised as a series of 
portraits with varying urban qualities,the film 
dwells not only on the visible urban attributes 
but also on the activities and connectedness that 
´make-up´ a public space. Undertaking an array of 
spatial explorations, the film seeks to find out 
as to what kinds of interference or interventions 
can activate public place(s).
