LOST IN TRANSITION
Film-animation in collaboration with Ely Dagher
“What we need to question is bricks, concrete, glass, our table manners, our utensils, our tools, the way we spend our time, our rhythms. To question that which seems to have ceased forever to astonish us. We live, true, we breathe, true; we walk, we go downstairs, we sit at a table in order to eat, we lie down on the bed in order to sleep. How? Where? When? Why?"
- Georges Perec, L’Infra-ordinaire
Due to the technological era we live in and the social pattern caused by social media, we no longer are focused on physical interactions rather on virtual ones. “Lost in Transition” is an urban object-space comprised of four seatings connected with an arch. The two internal chairs enforce a physical face-to-face interaction while the two external stools focus on a solitary moment for writing, reading or enjoying the surrounding. Blurring the boundaries between object and space, this versatile structure adapts to the ephemerality of spaces and enables numerous spatial configurations in various urban environments in the city. Scenarios: The Hangout, The Eatery, The Library, The Disco, The Workspace, The Gallery.
This 2nd short-film is part of a film series collaborating with directors and musicians, to intersect the realms of architecture, cinema and music. They emerge from the sisters' passionate curiosity, as they seek to delve into the essence of every design they conceive, be it a physical space or an object, by weaving them into imaginative narratives. Their aim is to captivate the audience with immersive storytelling that transcends mere static visuals.
