Tarkovsky: “Stalker” railway sequence

Posted in Posts by James Benedict Brown on 17 May, 2008

The interim reviews of the last week have brought my work back to ever clearer fundamental thesis of my design project, which is basically to do with the absurd and unusual architectural scenarios created by international frontiers. In a brainstorm of relevant cultural inspirations, I found this Youtube clip of a quite unforgettable scene from Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 film “Stalker”. I’ll say no more, except that the soundtrack was created by the Russian electronic musician Eduard Artemyev. Best enjoyed with good headphones that block out any other aural distraction.
