moving = events

Throughout this project I have often addressed to what extent movement defines the motorways identity and as my investigation has progressed it has become apparent to me that movement is the predominant force  that shapes this space. Why? it may seem like an obvious observation but our movement through the space creates the events that shape it.  

Every event that affects this zone originates from this act of passing, and as my work has become more focused I have become more and more interested in solely capturing this movement, to strip away the identifiable objects that trigger memory and association to leave the viewer with an abstracted representation of the movement that shapes this space.

With this experimental video piece I filmed a busy interchange capturing the people that passed through this space, then using filters stripped away the identifiable objects to reveal the true movement of the space.

This piece in many ways reminds me of Christopher Wools work, albeit a moving image in this case.
