A moving image installation based on Sergei Eisenstein’s notes and drawings for a science fiction movie that he pitched to Paramount in 1930. He imagined a great glass tower in which not only the walls, but also the floors and ceilings would be made out of glass, a structure of complete visibility. “Glass House” was to be satire on capitalism in which surveillance deeply undermines relations between people. He called it “a comedy of and for the eye”. This speculative projects imagines what Eisenstein’s film might have been and how it can speak to us in the twenty first century.
