one-dimensional man

Short, Italy, 2020, Digital, Color, 05’02"

Those places of the metropolis which are chaotic during the day reveal their own soul at night: billboards produce a swinging constant sound, escalators whirr undaunted, the brake of trains turns into an excruciating shout. The metropolis without men awakens. 


As a commuter, I often got to wait in train stations until late at night, listening to the alien sounds that echo in such environments. This is the context where one-dimensional man was born. The short video was filmed in the metropolis of Milan with poor equipment. Angelo Ubbiali, the sound designer, used the city sounds I recorded to compose a dystopian metropolitan soundtrack.
