areashape
areashape is a virtual space for experiments and reflection at the intersection of between art, architecture, daily life and design. It is a continuous research with many open questions.
Space research (in an architectural and sculptural sense) is one of its main concerns.

Eva Stenram, Break-In, (2008)
Break-In is a two channel video work using footage from two well known films from the 60s - George Romero’s Night of The Living Dead and Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds.
There are many similarities between the two films. Firstly, both films have a brother and sister with a dead father as central characters (and there is a child that needs to be saved while the central female character breaks down). Secondly, in both films the lead characters have travelled from the city to the ferocious countryside. The films depict a world in which natural biology has become disturbed and disturbing.
A final striking similarity is that both films feature fortified domestic spaces. The characters barricade themselves into rural houses in order to protect themselves from the birds or zombies.

Break-In uses footage from each film at the moment when the fortified houses are under attack. In Break-In the footage has been re-organised and edited frame by frame in order to fragment the two films into each other. Foootage from one film invades the rectangular space of the other film (and vice versa), mirroring the intrusion of the domestic house in both films.

"My grandmother remembers the Arab world much differently than people view it today. She remembers a place known for its music, innovation, and intellectual abilities. I may be naive, but I want to help work toward unity in the Arab world— both between our countries and within our countries— so that we can get back to that place again." (Amman, Jordan)
