Seoul

In this short film simply and existentially titled Seoul, fragments of time, space, and sound become a lens through which one can grasp the megacity of Seoul. Through a heightened instinctual response only available to an outside observer new to the city, Snellman captures glimpses of the quotidian and the extraordinary throughout the duration of a single day. In this way, the city becomes discernible as a continuum of events and relationships as well as natural and constructed ecologies. John Hong

 

The film was exhibited at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2016 and at the Korean Cultural Centre in London.
