Last semester (Fall 2018) I was a visiting lecturer at MIT. Together with Liam Young, we ran the ‘Fear and Wonder: The Shape of the Future’ course, as part of the ‘Experiments in Pedagogy’ series at the MIT School of Architecture and Planning. ‘Fear and Wonder’ questioned what the imaginary worlds of film and fiction have to say about our own world – creating experimental short films about our contemporary realities.
 
Excited to be able to share one of the films created by our students: ‘Content’ tells the story of a post-labor society in urban and rural China, centered around a culture of streaming apps like Kuaishou.

Los Angeles Walled City
 

I created a future cityscape of Los Angeles for a SCI-Arc Channel interview with Alvarius B of Sun City Girls.
 
“Ranked By David Fricke of Rolling Stone magazine in his best of 2017 column, Alvarius B.’s triple album juggernaut entitled “With a Beaker on the Burner and an Otter in the Oven,” is the latest example of his own original folks songs penned and performed unlike anything that anyone else is doing now. And as an interpreter of other people’s work, his songbook includes hundreds of cover songs from the obscure to the very familiar. This body of work is informed by an obsessive love of the singer-songwriter genre, folkloric music from beyond borders, retro Italian film soundtracks, and an extraordinary sense of humor. Over much of the past ten years, Bishop has been lurking in Cairo, composing & recording new Alvarius B. material while simultaneously establishing his own Egyptian-based band, The Invisible Hands and joining forces as a trio with Sam Shalabi and Maurice Louca to record and perform in The Dwarfs of East Agouza.”

I creative-directed a short film for the Seoul Biennale of Architecture – ‘Seoul City Machine’. Written and narrated by an artificially intelligent chatbot, the film is a love letter from a city operating system to its citizens.
