Can you imagine if buildings in a city could grow and bend on a whim as if they were living, breathing organisms? This short film, Spatial Bodies by AUJIK, plays with that concept, transforming the cityscape of Osaka into a totally trippy world where the laws of physics and gravity don’t really exist and buildings can take any shape.
It’d be fun to live in because it’d feel like you were on drugs the entire time. It’s also fun to just think about because for one, it just looks weird as hell, but also because the idea of man-made structures acting unpredictably flips everything on its head.
Spatial Bodies depicts the urban landscape and architectural bodies as an autonomous living and self replicating organism. Domesticated and cultivated only by its own nature. A vast concrete vegetation, oscillating between order and chaos.
