Shot in Paris, Sao Paulo and Toronto, Invention is an anthology of films by Mark Lewis. Lewis captures the ever-changing textures of these cities through moving images of glass, light, shadows and reflections, offering an homage to the City Symphony films of the 1920s, while also juxtaposing modernist architecture with the compositional structures of old master paintings.
Mark Lewis is a leading contemporary visual artist. Much of his work focuses on the technology of film and different genres that have developed in the 100+ years of cinema history. In 2015, Lewis completed the Invention films and edited them into a feature-length piece.
