Over the next several weeks, the 14th Factory will be filming a documentary like no other. The 14th Factory is a monumental, multi-media, socially engaged documentary film following British artist Simon Birch’s creation of an interactive art space. The set is comprised of a 3-acre empty warehouse located in the outskirts of downtown Los Angeles. The location has been transformed into the factory where Birch and his collaborators work and manufacture their art. The documentary films the viewer on a journey through 14 interlinked spaces comprised of video, installation, sculpture, paintings and performances. The project documents Birch’s creation of this innovative experience in collaboration with a global community of sixteen interdisciplinary artists from China, Hong Kong, the United States, United Kingdom and Canada.
