Renderlands, 2017, video

8 minutes

The film Renderlands of speculative architect Liam Young takes us into the world of render farms: companies that produce computer-generated images. Many of these companies are located in India and make visual material for architectural firms and the film and gaming industries. The same counts for the film Renderlands. Young exaggerates the effects of contemporary technologies up to the point where you can no longer ignore them. He shows how these technologies are able to build worlds, both literally and figuratively speaking.
