AA Conversations selects one unmissable event for you to attend this week
05 May 2015 Architectural Association, London   The unmissable lecture of this week is on Wednesday evening when Robert Horton, film critic and former Summer School tutor, will discuss What Time is it There?: Time as a Character in Contemporary Film. The lecture will look at the way hours, minutes and seconds have been manipulated, moved, stretched and slowed down to suit the telling of a specific story. From Richard Linklater's Boyhood (2014) that was filmed in real-time over 12 years so we could watch the characters age, to Christian Marclay's The Clock (2010) that splices together footage of different timepieces ticking away the minutes for an entire 24 hours, the lecture will look at how time goes beyond being just a tool for filmmakers to play with; and actually records the passage of real time and plays a significant role in structuring a film.   Also this week, is the final session of the Google Hangout-based Embedded Intelligence lecture series with director of MIT's Self-Assembly lab Skylar Tibbits talking about Material Intelligence on Tuesday evening. Then on Thursday is Ilias Papageorgiou of New York-based firm SO–IL who will explain the work of his practice through the theme of Ambiguous Boundaries. Also that evening, starting at 6.30 is a Members' screening of the film Watermark in the AA Cinema.   See the Events List to find out more or check the AA website to find out What’s On.
