Walking City (Citizens)
50 Unique Editions
Universal Everything have created 50 unique iterations exclusively for Sedition of their most recent work Walking City (2014) with 50 unique citizens, derived from the same processes as Walking City.
For Walking City (Citizens), Universal Everything have created what appears like a 3D human shrouded in a digital costume shifts and breaks, reshapes and endlessly evolves into a video sculpture that continuously walks in the centre of the screen.
The work references the utopian versions of the 1960s architecture practice Archigram: the language of the materials and patterns are transforming radical architecture in their own right, as if the city itself was walking, forever nomadic, adapting to its environment. Walking City (Citizens) is Universal Everything’s latest exploration into the creation of artificial forms whose movement feels visceral, alive, and un-synthesised – human.
