Stephen Connolly Machine Space (2016) The Box Apr 1, 2017-Apr 30, 2017 British filmmaker Stephen Connolly uses the city of Detroit-its economic and social history as well as its urban design-to explore the larger question of how space is constructed. Present-day images of Detroit, fractured and reflected through a car windshield, are combined with historical images, the voices of residents, and footage of a family playing the board game Life. The driving force of capitalism is revealed, and so great is its influence that space itself becomes a product-one shaped by inhabitation, spatial negotiation, and racial privilege. (38 mins., video) The production of Machine Space was supported by the Wexner Center's Film/Video Studio Program, the focus of this month's Picture Lock festival screening April 7-8.
