Improbable Architectures, A Self-quest (Almaç, 2015, 15:35)
Improbable Architectures, A Self-quest is part of the Improbable Architectures experiment. The film pursues my self-quest of becoming and designing through an unbounded, non-structured text. It is an attempt of a diagram-documentation. The tools of this diagram are; the IA poems (reR1: A Pack of Nobodies, reR2: Inexhaustible Nature of the Murmur, reR3: Consciousness of Nothing, reR4: Painful Contortions, reR5: Autobiographic Effort of A False Self); the log; 21 numbered unconscious drawings (UC drawings); and the portraits of IA. The documentation is structured through reRs with UC drawings. These drawings mark the end of every work day and the log entries follow them; and, IA portraits appear throughout the process.
