Lines in Flow

// multimedia installation, 2014 //

Part of the exhibition "Bigger Than Life - Ken Adam's Film Design" at Deutsche Kinemathek Berlin

LINES IN FLOW plays with the idea that Ken Adam might be found sitting at his drawing table in the Shepperton Studios near London. Smoking a cigar, he conjures up the year 1962.

Ken Adam has picked up his Flo-Master again for this installation, at age 93. Before the eyes of viewers, he uses his felt-tip pen to recreate his designs of a nuclear blastproof conference room located below the Pentagon; his iconic “War Room” from DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB (Stanley Kubrick, 1964). While drawing, he talks about the fundamental spatial metamorphosis that this center of power went through.
