An enigmatic film and a deep dive into a public artwork that has long fascinated spectators. Distorted reality and amorphous skyscrapers reflect a strange vision of the city landscape in Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate,” created for the Chicago Millennium Park. Urban art interacts with the existing reality of its environment, but also with the members of the public who walk around it, take photos with it, see it and are seen with it. Selfie questions the control exerted over us in the public space and technology’s constant watch over human activity.
