99 Clerkenwell Road

99 Clerkenwell Road (2010) film still

Filmed in an empty shop, the remaining features of the space are used to create a kaleidoscopic light film. Ceiling lamps become coloured spheres and circles that sweep across the frame. Pillars provide wipes and fades, window shutters are hole punched stencils, passing buses shoot beams of light. A toy solar system appears. Scale and depth constantly shift and colours are blindly combined as exposures gradually multiply. Overexposed glimpses of a wall or a flashing bollard outside bring the viewer down to earth.
