"A flight of stairs, eight trips down and eight trips up. steps---89 captures the mood and sense of agitation experienced within London's Underground network. Shot over a several days and at different times during the day, steps---89 provides an analysis of time and event. The shooting sequence of running down the flight of stairs to the Victoria Line platform at Euston Station and then up again was carried out for eight individual shots. For seven of these the camera is pointed down towards the feet and stairs while in the eighth the camera is pointed towards the wall on the right. By editing all eight shots in a single frame weave a discussion within the work about the relativity of points in space and time is allowed to emerge." (Sue K)
