TUFF Above Ground: David Clark
A series of 8-second videos made for the Toronto Urban Film Festival to display on one of the largest video billboards in downtown Toronto (September 9 - 15).
When we look through the microscope and see the basic vignettes of life proceeding almost magically, there is awe for the complexity created by simple biological processes. Now imagine that our city is just such a microcosm. This series of animations provides us the ‘God view’ on the cellular life of a city.
