125-WORD SYNOPSIS
Slow Space is a film journey through places of glass architecture in Chicago. Street scenes and interviews complement this essay on public and private spaces. Slow Space is a film and art project by Klaus W. Eisenlohr. With his project in Chicago, the artist has investigated the relationship between the body and the urban architectural environment over the time period of three years. Searching the anomalies of the normal, the filmmaker traces a 'Desire for Modernity' in the city's architecture being shaped by pre- and postmodern forces. In addition, the film discusses the topic of public space in American cities through interviews with the Chicago artists and filmmakers Deborah Stratman, Chris Harris, Gretchen Till, Ken Fandell, Thomas Comerford and Eduardo Pradilla.

250-WORD SYNOPSIS
Slow Space is a film journey through places of glass architecture in Chicago. Street scenes and interviews complement this essay on public and private spaces. Slow Space takes the viewer on a visual trip through the city of Chicago without showing streets or plazas like we have seen in travel guides. Instead, the journey goes through places roofed and lit by glass architecture: Garfield Park Conservatory, Juvenile Court, Merchandise Mart, Cumberland Station, Nature Museum, Westside Future, C├ęsar Chavez Elementary School, Tower Condominium, Jackson Academy, Lincoln Park Conservatory, a private living room, Gran Hyatt Regency and some other places. Scenes set in open urban space and interviews filmed in private homes complement this passage through public and private places. Slow Space is a film and art project by Klaus W. Eisenlohr.
