Project film

Spatial Negotiations

Spatial Negotiations, inspired by the decentreliced systeme of Slime Mol

Non Human Intelligence + Urban Regeneration = Spatial Negotiations

A looped film installation commenting the raw architecture of Lokstallarna with body and dance. The object of the project was to explore the environment inside and around former industrial sites in the city of Malmö.

Inspired by the one cell organism Slime Mold, the communication strategies of this organism – used for robot simulations, medical and economic research – was taken to simulate non hierarchical, collective movements in public space. The film aims to picture the resilience of human creativity, manifested through a vulnerable and yet architectural language of the dancers.

Spatial Negotiations is a shared process of choreographer Emma Ribbing and visual artist Heather Barnett.

The film opened BioTallinn, the Tallinn Architecture Biennale, in 2017.
