As we were talking about stop-motion animation in master class, I d like to share this short but I could not remember.  Two Dreams is directed by Jamie Stone and Anders Jedenfors who were Edinbugh Collage of Art students that I met during erasmus.

Labbeus Woods

Posted in Architecture, Art by baskonusbirakdinle on October 9, 2009

Lebbeus Woods is archartist. His works remind me cyberpunk cities that are experienced in many anime and manga. In cinema, Metropolis(1927) may be a pioneer, Blade Runner (1982)  is the follower to this genre which are set in post industrial dystopias, often varied with a detective story or a conflict of a  human like robot. Another sibling, 12 monkeys (1995) has copied one his piece and he won a copyright trail but then he let them use the scene, the interrogation cell with the chair with the forklift.

Woods’ architecture is like a setting after a despair in a community, after a destruction that can be a war, an earthquake, a political struggle… He has been doing projects for alternative post-conflict architecture, some takes place in Sarajevo, San-Francisco and Havana.

He has a marvelous blog and one of the newest entry is a film treatment that is named as Underground  Berlin. It is like a comic more that a scenario to me with black-white ink drawn sketches.

One of a project that I have done during the last year of architecture school with Onur Tetik is deeply inspired by Woods.

District 9

Posted in Cinema by baskonusbirakdinle on October 1, 2009

Recently I’ve seen  my newest favorite movie, District 9. Well, the reason is that it is an anti-alien movie meaning the aliens are like refugees in earth who are leaving like scavengers and treated badly by the human. They are like Philistines living in a ghetto. As i watched the movie I felt sorry for them so that their cockroach like appearance did not bother me at all. Violence is fortified with squishing bug skins and saliva like alien blood. The johannesburg english accent made me laugh a little bit during the non-stop heavy imagery shot by handy-cam that fit very well to documentary like atmosphere of the movie.

I believe that Peter Jackson who produced the movie must have liked the “bad taste” like atmosphere of the short  (having the same taste in being amatuer and wildly messy) so that he encouraged Neill Blomkamp to shoot a long feature of the story.
