Façade, by artist Phil Coy, constructs a journey through a topology of contemporary glass architecture. The film mixes tracking shots over the façades of buildings, with high definition architectural visualisations of the same. It is a film of non-spaces and immateriality featuring the indiscernible surfaces of contemporary glass buildings, reception lobbies and glass lifts, a green screen television studio and high definition digital animations of architectural ‘walkthroughs’ and never-to-be-built glass buildings.
Façade is a single screen work commissioned by Arts Council England through Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network, Whitstable Biennale and Futurecity, with co-support from the BFI National Archive, National Glass Centre, Miller Hare, Pilkington Group Ltd and Foggo Associates.
Phil Coy is a Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN) Productions Fund awardee 2009.
