Daniel Eisenberg’s THE UNSTABLE OBJECT juxtaposes the production of luxury automobiles in Dresden, clocks in Chicago and cymbals in a town outside of Istanbul. These detailed observations of modern factories reveal the distance between the creation and consumption of objects within our globalized economy. This results in a rich visual experience made all the more ironic by the fact that the workers in Chicago assembling the clocks are blind (and therefore never experience the scenes which the filmmaker presents). Although clearly referencing early industrial films, Eisenberg cleverly and attentively recorded all the sound entirely on location, creating a heightened esthetic universe all his own.
