These short films are sketches towards a longer as yet untitled project (working title, Portraits of the Middleincome); juxtaposing a free translation of Henri Michaux's Portrait des Meidosems (1949) with various historical and literary texts upon images of the City of London with the intention of crafting a transhistorical poetic-cinematic survey of the city's cuts, dismemberments, borders, plagues and gentrifications. 

 

Music and voice recorded in Vienna, December 2013.

Images captured in London (Beckton; Waterloo; Canning Town; Holborn; Bishopsgate), January 2016.
