In the early 1970s, Siah Armajani’s experimentation with computer-based graphics paved the way not only for a new aesthetic field, but also expanded his artistic practice to new territories. Taking his film work on the exploration of structures and lines using computer graphics as a point of departure, this film series expands into a presentation of films by other filmmakers/ artists in a similar theme of “line structure” and three others of Armajani’s tropes of interests: bridges, houses, and gardens. (Links at bottom for more information.) Just as Armajani’s Dictionary for Building (1974–75) deconstructs the typology of domestic architecture, these films explore new meanings of functional, social, and visual concepts of architecture and space.
These six films will be played on loop during opening hours from 18 July to 17 November, 2019. During this time, a presentation of films by other filmmakers/ artists, grouped according to the themes Line Structure, Bridges, Houses, and Gardens, will also be shown in conjunction with Siah Armajani’s films.
