Synopsis
With a starting point in the architectural facades of Brussels, the postcards become a filter through which to view the city as a facade. Whereas the front of the postcard is a construction of the identity of the city, the back is a singular personal reference. In architecture façadism is when the building is demolished leaving only the façade.
In a porous grid system of lines, layers and time, the facade becomes our shared reference to read the temporal space of the city. The digital, animated sharp glitches sparks the contrasted and grainy black and white analogue film and the film inhabits the cinema space with a flicker-like meditative pulse.
