Screening: Newham Babylon – In Search of Constant

Tuesday 27 May 2014 | 14:45 - 16:00
Cinema, Bermondsey Square, SE1 3UN, London, UK

To accompany Phillip Reeves and Jim Woodall’s exhibition “Abandoned Land: Sharp Continent” the artists present a film exploring the ideas set out in Constant’s ’New Babylon’ in the virtual world of Second Life.

Interplaying Second Life with a real life ‘dérive’ – a method of moving through urban terrain in a manner which is determined by the whim of the traverser – the artists form a discursive narrative on the objects they come across, and discuss ‘New Babylons’ merits, failures and limitations.
