“Warehouse”, a meditative ethnographic short film.
An intimate encounter in the warehouse, a cosmos of objects where carpenter labour happens. The trace of sound in every bit of object can be seen as individuals within a space, where every material has its own texture, smell and acoustic properties. The array of sounds and images confront audiences with the aural and visual textures of the labour and the space itself. The film guides into a sensory experience, through the up-close, intense sonic and visual engagement and an imaginative soundscape composition.
