Six channel video installation, 22 minutes, loop
funded by Arts Council England & Site Gallery, Sheffield
A series of parrallel journeys in the iconic glass lifts of the Lloyds building. People enter and leave one of six lifts and embark on interacting journeys, Each journey, filmed from inside the lift has had the background buildings and horizon digitally locked in position.
The result makes the lifts travel past the screens, an unexpected relationship between the camera, the vertical journey and the background perspectives result: a slippage between figure and ground.
