Anja and I were in St Ives yesterday, visiting a co-conspirator on our ‘transitions’ project. Walking through the town, the pavement is narrow in places and I stepped into the road to walk around a bus shelter. Anja said she could see me through the opaque panel that had seen rather better days. We decided to take a few photos then and do a small video ‘sketch’ on the way back. This is the result.
The imagery is wonderfully ‘other-worldy’ and rather ghostly. I love the dints and graffiti on the panels……we could immediately see this becoming part of the project. However, making videos on the edge of a busy road is not without it’s risks. I don’t suppose anyone has got an old opaque panel lying around that they don’t want any more by any chance? …..and the more beaten up the better!
