I like #19.

Architecture of Density; sounds like the upper-managment structure where I work.

Nice website.

This looks like something out of the Matrix.

There was an arthouse film called Koyaanisqatsi (North American Indian word, think it means 'Life out of Balance') back in the 80's, which was a video accompaniment to a Philip Glass soundtrack. Very influential on advertising at the time, all that city time-lapse footage of traffic and so on. Anyway, there's a sequence flying over a housing project outside some Chinese city - Chongqing or maybe Hong Kong. Take the Red Road flats and multiply by 50. Mind-numbing.

Philip Glass still tours the states with this, takes an orchestra into the cinema, plays the film with the sound off and the orchestra provide the sound track, gives a talk and a Q&A afterwards.

Fantastic film, gets shown in the GFT form time to time, definately worth a look

there are three films in the trilogy, only seen the first two and they are well worth seeing.

Philip Glass played the Theartre Royal about 15 years ago BTW. 10,000 airplanes on the roof was the show.

I actually got Koyaanisqatsi and the sequel Powaqqatsi on DVD a year and a half ago and still haven't got round to watching them.
