Slow Violence

A manifesto pitches urban regeneration as ‘slow violence’ – a process of massive man-made environmental change, unnoticed due to its slow pace. The characters attending the manifesto position themselves in relation to the city it describes. Torn between its seduction and its oppression, they come to realize that they do not live in a city, but in a machine; a machine which trains them for its use.
