A collection of five distinct films centering around the city environment in a constant state of change, focusing on images of construction and destruction of modern structures in the urban environment. CONTINUUM CONTINUUM (1987) centers on the people who perform hard manual labor, such as tarring roofs, digging up streets, etc. DECONSTRUCTION SIGHT (1995) shows how modern methods of construction have rendered men and women insignificant behind mammoth tools of destruction. IN THE COURSE OF HUMAN EVENTS (1997) documents the demolition of the Embarcadero Freeway, which was structurally damaged during the 1989 earthquake. THE LINE OF FIRE (1997) finds Angerame returning to his apartment building the day after it burned down. And PREMONITION (1995) shows the vacant Embarcadero Freeway after it has outlived its usefulness, but before its destruction.
