Size and time are fixed parameters in factual, perceptible, empirical space. In film these parameters become variables. Actual Size Real Time is a project by Julie Pfleiderer and Miriam Rohde. They portray architecture and built space using filmic means. Through these portraits they not only want to show what a building looks like, but also and most importantly, they want to explore and expose how it can be looked at. For the first episode of Actual Size Real Time Rohde and Pfleiderer teamed up with with four emerging Belgian architecture offices. Partial Views features five different buildings which are similar in some regards: they are all residential projects in various degrees of completion, located in
different parts of Flanders. However, the aim of the film is not to render a distinct impression of each building. Partial Views is mainly about looking at and from these houses. This looking is not neutral, linear, steady or ideal. It is affected by the circumstances: interrupted, repetitive, forgetful, curious, focussed or distracted, and above all mediated by a technical device, the camera.
For the sound of Partial Views Rohde and Pfleiderer collaborated with the Belgian sound artist Peter Lenaerts. The entire soundtrack consists of sounds recorded in and outside the filmed buildings.
