Brilliant City 14:30, Color, Stereo, GB, CN, 2009

The title refers to the location, a residential complex comprised of 25 high rises in the northern part of Shanghai (China). It is entirely shot from the 34th floor of one of the buildings and stages a peeping tom view of the city below, capturing everyday activities that can be observed from this vantage point such as training soldiers, building activity, traffic, gardening. The camera hovers above the entire panorama and focuses on details in the everyday life of this rapidly changing metropolis.
