Train No.8

Daniel Crooks
2005

Daniel Crooks manipulates time and space in this video work through his innovative ‘timeslice’ technique which takes the viewer on a bizarre, beautiful and fantastic ride through a familiar urban landscape. London is transformed as each object is stretched into painterly smears of colour one moment, and then retracted into miniatures of themselves the next. Cars and people in the foreground move in the opposite direction to the buildings in the background. As a thin slice of reality captured by the camera is dispersed across a flat plane, time, space and motion combine to reveal relative realities within the video image that defy our general understanding of movement and perception.
