Floating Stillness

Floating Stillness portrays a specific moment in time. It is a meditation on a paradoxical period at a multifunctional building for collective use. Instead of weaving together people and stories, the big machine is on standby, its parts suspended mid-air. Floating Stillness guides us through different spaces as the temporarily vacant building is revealed in fragments. The sound emerges, unveiling an expectant inner soul. In this narrative, the building is the starting point for a poetic analysis of the moment we are living in.

Miguel C. Tavares was born and raised in Porto, where he works as an independent filmmaker and visual artist, after having studied architecture at FAUP in Porto. Together with Ana Resende and Tiago Costa he started a series of films that explore visual constructions from architectural works. He often collaborates with different artists and disciplines and his work reflects this multidisciplinarity.
