Lecture 4

“My main concentration is in film, animation and a combination of motion graphics.”

20 years ago, Nic Clear was a teacher at Bartlett’s school of Architecture. His main concentration is in film, animation and a combination of motion graphics. Nic Clear spoke about Norman Foster who made the famous London building the Gherkin. And told us how Norman Foster did well at school and became interested in architecture. He left school at 16 and worked in the Manchester City Treasurer’s office. And is a well-known architect.

Nick Clear also expressed what architectural representation is and displayed traditional architectural drawings. And Images that links up to the story of how drawing inaugurated, images that relate to the story of how drawing began.

Nic Clear then introduced us a video called Robots of Brixton by Kibwe Tavares. I thought this video was amazing. And loved the concept of young robots surviving at the sharp end of inner city life. It starts off with a robot in the bus looking out towards the window. Then appears in a shopping city, walking into a different room. The robot afterwards, wakes up into a new ecosphere. When the Police invade the one space, which the robots can call their own. And I really liked the bit where two robot nations have a war.

We also watched David Lynch’s ‘Panic Room’ video and how D. Lynch used the video and digital cinema. Panic room is a point of argument among my friends as to how well done it is. One opinion runs that it is a shallow thriller with a predictable plotline and filled with many of the special effect techniques that were both necessary and complementary to fight club. It was very attention-grabbing video.
