The camera pans through elevated levels of a fragmented and futuristic city featuring sky gardens, and empty high-rise towers that humans appear to have left behind.
Hybrid ‘architectural models are textured with borrowed/ downloaded visuals and smart-phone-camera stills embedded into their multi-faceted surfaces. Whilst online maps of real-world city locations are used as templates to create 3d structures.

The film was originally inspired by a journalism article ‘Ghost Towers’ about unoccupied high-rise towers in the city.
