Double Vision: In this episode of Resonance’s monthly show on how Architecture and the built environment is represented in Culture, Alex Fitch talks to the creators of two works of fiction involving double vision. Graphic Novelists Anna Mill and Luke Jones discuss their book Square Eyes which depicts a dystopian future where the inhabitants of a city wear augmented reality glasses to see a more idealised version of their environment. Also, director Nathan Catucci explores the uncanny New York landscape of his thriller Impossible Monsters as a psychology professor’s research into sleep disorders leads to deadly results. Interviews recorded at Cartoon County, Brighton and Cine Excess 13, Birmingham City University.
Square Eyes is available now from Jonathan Cape; Impossible Monsters is currently sceeening in US cinemas, with its UK Vimeo / VOD release on March 3rd.
