Physics can help us model everything from cell growth to the movement of planets. Apparently it also understands how cities live and die.
Giganto is a hyper dimensional photography intervention project that uses the urban scene and the city’s architecture as a platform for photographic exhibition. Creating an odd dialog with the environment, they generated a reflection about the life in the city and its scary structures.
