This film was commissioned by Liverpool Biennial and shown in Tata Liverpool in 2006. In the process of exploring Liverpool urban transformation, we can find in the old urban plan a lot of spaces and facilities that are vaguely defined and planned. These weird spaces are like mysteries scattered over the city, waiting to be disclosed or changed at an appropriate time. This project continues the core concept of city spirit – through observation and behavioural interposition, the possibilities of the co-existence of city and surroundings are brought forward. Also, on the premise that no changes to the present surroundings will be made, through a form of urban tour, an interpretation is made of these locations from the artist’s point of view. Through these interpretations that rationalize the embarrassing urban spaces, the link between functions and meanings is removed to readdress the relationship between people and life spaces. Also through ridiculous scenes, an attempt is to be made to search for an overlap of life experiences.
