Above, is the most recent edit of my conceptual short film titled Rebirth (destruct.abstract.construct). I am yet to complete the final few scenes which interpret the conceptual birth (construct) of the new site, but I hope the film as it stands provides a notion of the concept I'm aiming to achieve. The film is captured in 3D Anaglyph so if possible get hold of a pair of 3D anaglyph glasses to maximise viewing.

Admittedly, slightly inspired by the Aygo by Toyota advert I modelled this conceptual nuclei of the existing site with the help of the displace function in cinema 4D. the form will be at the centre of the existing site as it expands/explodes out spirally before its transition into its new form. The song accompanying the video which I will play in the film is the intro to a remix titled Monday by The Glitch Mob.

The Chronogram above has been developed further from last week's to incorporate key scenes from the conceptual film of the OCCA proposal titled 'Rebirth: destruct.abstract.construct'. The stills in the Chronogram have been captured in 3D anaglyph, so get hold of a pair of 3D glasses if you can. Down below is an edit of key scenes from the beginning of the short film. Captured in 3D anaglyph, the edit sequence shows the destruction of the existing site leading to the birth of the new.

Whilst I gather some footage extracts of the film to upload, here are some before and after shots of the proposed temporary streets arts pavilion on the abandoned warehouse site on Osborn street.
The streets' pavilion is a temporary structure made from KK-System spaceframe components. It is easily erectable and offers a public platform for emerging and established artists to showcase their work.
I believe there is beauty to be found in the derelict and abandoned. The aesthetics of ageing walls with peeling paint has a certain desired quality about it. It is for this reason that I have retained a large proportion of the existing site, and created temporary builds (including the arts pavilion,crafts workshop/internet hub,skate&bike vert ramp and restaurant) within the vacant or extremely decaying spaces within the site. I believe it provides a harmonious synergy between old and new.
