I was invited to be a part of the
group show "A13" at the Wapping Project.
The show was the brainchild of Rowan Moore (director of the Architecture
Foundation and author). He has a deep love for the A13 road, which runs
from the City of London all the way down to Southend-on-Sea on the east
I was asked to make a film that was inspired by the magic and beauty of
this ancient road. I drove up and down it many times
trying to get inspired, but after much time thinking,
I felt nothing. I found it to be an ugly, dirty road and hard as I tried
I couldn't be inspired to create a piece of video art about it.
So instead I strapped the curator, Rowan Moore, to the back of a flatbed
truck and drove him up and down the road as he told us why he thought
it was so fabulous.
