‘archicine’ by artist federico babina is a series of illustrations representing iconic film buildings — from ‘dogville’ by lars von trier to ‘mon oncle’ directed by jacques tati. the scenographies imagined, realized and built to tell stories and reveal these architectural spaces not just as a background, but rather transformed as an additional protagonist to the main characters. movies themselves have the ability to transport viewers to different worlds and lives, allowing them to experience both real and fabricated environments. seen through the lens of a camera, the ‘archicine’ drawings show the creative vision of some of the most important directors in the history of cinema.
