2006 Video installation

Transit journeys through the East End of London, quietly observing the shifting architectural and social landscape. Through the soundtrack the writer Iain Sinclair provides the pieces of a labyrinthine narrative by which the viewer can navigate these landscapes in transition.

Underneath Smithfield Market, at a juncture where the past encroaches upon the contemporary world, a 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 arts project in conjunction with the London Architectural Biennale in June 2006.
