"The city is not. Not because of a hypothetical, physical absence — the city is well present — but because it escapes naming." -Johannes Binotto and Andri Gerber
In SEMIOTICS OF THE CITY, shots of urban situations flicker past in rapid succession. They are underlaid by computer-generated voices that enumerate the audio-visual elements they contain. The result is a close-meshed network of terms and categories whose sense of representing the depicted urbanity as completely as possible is taken ad absurdum.
