Abstract: 'Building Things' imagines that a camera is dropped off the side of an office building. As it travels downward and looks into room after room, different actions unfold. Each room is the vernacular of an office, with all its standard accoutrements: a table, a desk, a clock, a filing cabinet, a cupboard, a suspended ceiling, light panels and a wastepaper bin. We’re somewhere and yet these imagined interior spaces could be anywhere, housed in a tower of glass and steel and concrete. Under Wood and Harrison’s exacting yet playful approach, the rooms become sites for a comedic send-up of everyday events and office culture.
