Model for Cinema is a foam-core model holding three miniature screens on which videos are projected. Each relates to experiments in architecture as social engineering. In “Zonen”, three developers roam a prospective site, improvising generic planner-speak about “ensuring that all values are rooted” and “establishing a critical forum”. The rote phrases hint that real social relations and individual experiences slip through the ent of such for- mal abstractions, and they return viewers to an overarching concern: the problem of the unfixed relationship between representational form and ideological valence.
