Sidreoom Manifesto

2015



People People is a video manifesto based off of the written version developed by Amal Alhaag and Maria Guggenbichler commissioned for the closing of The Side Room – a feminist art space in Amsterdam. In the video, a patch of volcanic rock that makes up the geologic foundation of The Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México teems with life as ambient sounds are mixed to emphasize aspects of the text. Emulating the placement of iconography in flag design, an animated rendering of an atom loops in the upper right corner of the video.
