Walking City - "Referencing the utopian visions of 1960’s architecture practice Archigram, Walking City is a slowly evolving video sculpture. The language of materials and patterns seen in radical architecture transform as the nomadic city walks endlessly, adapting to the environments she encounters."

Loved this a lot. Seems it was made with Houdini.

What is "architecture practice Archigram"?

It's not well worded, but it's referring to a futurist architectural group from the 60s.

So, I love this.

Also, it could really do without the archispeak mumbo-jumbo (definition, primer, related). Archigram did some interesting conceptual work, but a particular strain of city fetishism seems to be its primary legacy: unlivable, formal render noodlings, Rhino sketches, and omnipresent ambient-occlusion lighting on white (e.g.).

Still, I love this. It’s so beautiful.

I found this curiously compelling and hypnotic at the same time. Thanks for posting.
