Heterotopic Cinema transforms the traditional program of a suburban cinema complex in Epping, northern Melbourne with hybrid spatial experiences derived from existing social activities of its citizens. Heterotopic and abstract spatial ideas from philosopher Michel Foucault’s seminal text ‘Of Other Spaces’ (1986) are used as a design methodology to alter existing cinematic experiences by integrating a series community-based social programs directly into filmic space. The resulting experience is unorthodox and challenges ideas of cinematic spatial experience, eliciting complex ‘time and space’ paradoxes.
