Focus Years: 2009 | Country: China
A visual trip through an abandoned area under the foundation of popular buildings in a suburb of Naples, in Southern Italy, an empty unidentified and someway mysterious place lying under the city. "Alice in the City" is a project of psychogeographic observation, which tell us the contrast between different worlds of significance and show us the physical oxymorons made by time and development. Each episode describes a district, a corner of the city, a discovery which goes beyond the narrow visual field of everyday itinerary. Itâ€™s all about sensing places, shapes, lines, people as if itâ€™s the first time, like lettrist psychogeography used to do in search of the emotional effects of the environment.
