Video for ‘The Dog’ by Group Listening.
Set amongst the brutalist architecture of Cwmbran, as an homage to the utopian visions of any new town built through 1960’s and 70’s Britain. Such places were a promise of the future, but through the 80’s and 90’s often became run down and depressed and their architecture dispararged. This video aims to recapture some of the understated beauty of the stark concrete buildings that characterised such development by presenting a space that is perhaps out-of-time without any clear purpose – both at odds with nature whilst being part of the social landscape.
And there’s a dog.
