This is part of a continuous experiment – a solitary study – on transposing the language of architectural photography into video. The reference to photography is clear, with many takes with a fixed camera. As the objective is the understanding of the architectural project, the takes are several seconds long – always more than five. The human figure is essential, as it demonstrates scale, axis, paths and possible interactions between man and building. The recorded sound, of low quality and subject to wind noise, was replaced by a soundtrack which then based the editing process.
Recorded with the Canon 5D Mark II and TS-E 24mm lens. Edited in Final Cut Pro. No color grading. Soundtrack by 'The Cinematic Orchestra'.
This pavilion houses the work of contemporary brazilian artist Adriana Varejão. The building was designed by architects Rodrigo Cerviño Lopez, Fernando Falcon and Eduardo Chalabi. Concluded in 2008. Opened in 2006, the Inhotim Institute in Brumadinho, Minas Gerais, Brazil is a centre for contemporary arts. Houses artwork from brazilian and international artists in several pavilions, galleries and throughout its gardens, which were conceived by Roberto Burle Marx.
There is also a longer, seven minute long version with a different soundtrack and edit which can be seen . Nonetheless, the video that I prefer is the one linked above.
