Phase one begins with the vast Yorkshire Landscape. Microorganisms multiplying, bodies moving as one entity to the shape of the green hills. The curvature mimicking the human figure. The singular entity transfers energy into different parts of the natural, Branching out into humans, birds, foxes and fish. Everything is moving. I moved from North to South to the city watching bodies follow routine. The city is the factory. Here lies the structures. The transfer of energy between body and machine. Phase one focuses on the commodity of time and labour, on the Psychogeography of the city, the energy of movement between places, the commute. It's about the rhythm, the sounds of traffic and people and the light the city creates. The train is the transport that forms the link between these two living systems acting as an in-between space. The windows form a box shape, and mimic the television screen. Everything is viewed within a box in a city of production. The windows are seen on high-rise blocks of flats, offices and town-houses forming an insight to these micro-environments. These scenes light up at night and we watch. The television mirrors the windows. It is the epitome of scheduled time. I watch the rhythm, pace and drama of these emotional ups and downs condensed into 30 minute time frames.
