In Young's talk and film screening, he presents works that move among the realms of architecture, film, and fiction. By merging documentary footage taken on expeditions around the world with fragments of speculative narratives, Young produces a vision of what he describes as an "exaggerated present" through storytelling, to explores the complexity of cities and the influence of new technologies and networks on space, culture, and community.
