Out Of Hours

“Out of Hours” constitutes a highly personal and subjective nocturnal, visual portrait of Cambridge. It constructs a virtual image of the city based on the creative reshuffle of the spatial elements of the cityscape. Nodes, paths, districts, and edges of the city’s layout, both distinct architectural landmarks and featureless, homogenous housing areas form a varied canvas of seemingly unrelated images that provoke multiple readings of the urban geography and its various layers. A flaneuse, Birke-Siri Scherf, wondering through the empty streets of the city provides an elliptical and austere narrative mechanism for bringing the diverging elements of the city together.
