Uploadcity (la Biennale die Venezia)
At the heart of the Italian Pavilion, Upload City shows a selection of videos downloaded from the world wide web. Videos ranging from experimental collages created out of digital building blocks, to how the city and its architecture is used by a generation of freestylers seemingly not bound by gravity.
In Upload City the structures of the city can be formed as well as left behind. All participants, curators and commisioners of the Biennale of Venice are asked to archive their favourite, meaningful, inspiring or fun (re)presentations of architecture in the virtual domain. Without the existence of light there is no virtual world.
Studio Léon&Loes designed 10 big black pixelblocks based on the letterforms of the word UploadCity to create a cityscape-character. The letters were cut out and the lightsource was placed in the pixelblocks to create this image build out of light.
