Liam Young’s work Where the City Can’t See (1-4) are stills from his film under the same name, the first ever fiction movie shot entirely with laser scanning technology. Young’s work explores his overlapping interest among film, fiction, design and uses storytelling to investigate a future prototype of a city. Using hypothetical design, film and the visualisation of imaginary cities, he opens up conversations about urban existence, raising queries about the roles of architecture and technology in a modern context.
