Endless Cities 04:36, Color, Stereo, GB, 2009
Continuing D-Fuse’s exploration into urban landscapes, Endless Cities_Redux (Surface 2.0) is a condensed extract from D-Fuse’s project Surface (Surface 1.0) starting out as a journey to some of the rising metropolitan centres of East Asia and the Pacific Rim. D-Fuse have been collaborating with local artists in each city to document their urban spaces and the dynamics at work within them. This has been done through exploration on street level, media research, and the sharing of materials, ideas and working methods. This collaborative aspect, while also giving rise to questions of authorship, has served to subvert any preconceived notions of a given place, culture or society on the part of the visitors, instead creating a lively interchange between local and global, interior and exterior viewpoints. Overall, D-Fuse have worked with around 80 artists on this project.
