In times of mass communication and globalization there is no need in visiting a place to get an idea of it. Thus most people have a notion of global cities like New York or Barcelona although they never were on the spot. This thought leeds to our second thesis: In order to convey the image of a place it isn't necessary to visit this place. Thi s assumption forms the basis of our work. Although none of the shooting was done in a global city, like the two mentioned above, the work conveys the beholder in an abstract manner what constitutes the essence of these cities: electricity, movement/mobility, progress, traffic, urbanism (the architecture and the public space shape the behaviour of the inhabitants), melting pot. The video was made in the Ruhr area, a metropolitan area which was formed by modernism as well. This gave us the opportunity to combine imagined pictures of alien cities with everyday scenes as found right on the doorstep.
