    "Private Views" creates a parallel between two starkly different worlds: the wretchedness of the destitute and the conspicuous consumer lifestyle of the nouveaux riches. The video explores the themes of social inequalities, real estate speculation, and dispossession. It documents the decline of some North American cities and casts a critical eye on the emergence of wealthy new suburbs. These private residential enclaves are often gated and under surveillance. Their luxury homes, with their dubious architectural style, are the reflection of a world dominated by appearances, consumption, and social conformity.

    "Private Views" met en parallèle deux mondes bien différents : la misère des déshérités et le style de vie ostentatoire des nouveaux riches. La vidéo explore les thèmes des inégalités sociales, de la spéculation immobilière et de la dépossession. Elle documente le déclin de certaines villes nord-américaines et jette un regard critique sur l’émergence de nouvelles banlieues cossues. Ces enclaves résidentielles privées sont souvent clôturées et surveillées. Leurs habitations luxueuses, d’un style architectural douteux, sont à l’image d’un monde dominé par les apparences, la consommation et le conformisme social.

  4. Construction. Transience. Progress. Conservationist’s nightmare, futurist’s dream.
    Histories ancient and modern conflict and converge. The squeaking screeching belts of mechanical motion, dinosaurs across the skyline, synchronous rhythm of men at work. After hours the site is empty, eerie. Ageless ghosts and Gods watch and whisper. Another new iconic structure emerges. Overcrowding. Suffocation.
