In the beginning there was a brick that flew through space. It flew past skyscrapers and keeps reappearing in this film about construction and destruction. Brick by brick – where will that ultimately lead? Architecture is the game of positioning bodies in light. Darkness needs its space. The future is already misaligned.
The film follows the emotional traces of architecture in society, and tries to trace the periodic impulse of "Build and Destroy". The effect of civil engineering, eco-village and optical fibre cable on the individual is dissolved in tempting tableaux. Ulu Braun assembles playful, associative and powerful images. In this realm, sizes, relations and contexts become malleable. Owing to the deconstruction of proportions and coherencies, Ulu Braun’s narrative becomes a fable. – A father shows the world to his child: that will be all yours one day, he says. Soap bubbles float upward. It is all a cyclical affair.
