A short film by a collective of artists and filmmakers transforms actual footage of the Osaka skyline into a living, self-replicating organism to depict a world where architecture grows organically.
Titled Spatial Bodies, the film morphs the Osaka skyline into a physics-defying world of architecture, with architectural structures twisting and curving like vines, suspended in the sky with no regard for gravity. The film was created by Aujik, a collaborative of artists and filmmakers that describes itself as a ‘mysterious nature/tech cult’.
Aujik’s statement about Spatial Bodies: “Spatial Bodies depicts the urban landscape and architectural bodies as an autonomous living and self-replicating organism. Domesticated and cultivated only by its own nature. A vast concrete vegetation, oscillating between order and chaos.”
The architectural experiments of Victor Enrich, who’s known for exploring the idea of structures behaving in strange ways, seem to have inspired the film.
