The Order of Things
BY
Henry & Kihlberg:
Karin Kihlberg & Reuben Henry

In what might be considered a natural history for buildings, The Order of Things depicts the world’s largest half marathon from the perspective of a society of sentient architectures and man-made structures. Encountering the mass event via senses borrowed from long-distance runners in a state of rhythmic trance, the sentient structures present the urban environment of the course of the run while intoxicated by the delusions of consciousness.

Linking the psychology of long distance running to the perception of architecture, the flow of the film forges a surreal journey through the abstract formalism of the urban landscape of North-East England, and forms an unwitting ode to the industrial design of its road and motorway system.
