Pierre-Jean Giloux seeks to create a language using sound and image that combines elements of pop culture and mass media with more “intellectual” cultures which refer to the visual arts and architecture. This first monograph by the artist accompanies a series of videos inspired by the Metabolists, a utopist architecture movement which emerged in Japan in the late 1950s. It follows the films’ production as he explores the connections between four cities (Tokyo, Yokohama, Osaka, Kyoto) to create urban portraits combining digital with filmed or photographed images of social and urban reality. The book includes texts by Pierre Musso, Élie During, and Vincent Romagny.
