Transit journeys through the East End of London quietly observing the shifting architectural and social landscape. Iain Sinclair provides the pieces of a labyrinthine narrative through the soundtrack from which the viewer can navigate these landscapes in transition. Underneath Smithfield Market, at a juncture where the past encroaches upon the modern world, the modern two storey car park fills the old underground meat depot. It leaves only one remaining row of the original high arched vaults, where the film was projected as part of a Measure project in conjunction with the London Architectural Biennale, June 2006.
