About Impostor Cities
The world we live in is the global generic city we experience together onscreen. Impostor Cities is about architectural identity and faking it, exploring the ways Canada’s buildings and cities double as other places in ﬁlm and television. Through clips, video interviews and green-screen opportunities, this multimedia project is a playful critique of cultural self-presentation, examining movies as powerful sites of architectural experience, expression and authenticity.
Exploring new directions for architecture, Impostor Cities brings us together in a shared cityscape — a place that most have not physically visited, but which exists in the minds of moviegoers around the world, constructed through patchwork impressions of Canada’s architecture and landscapes.
