NOCTURNE

2002 / 16mm / color / sound / 1S / 5' 00

Nocturne is a 5 minute film shot entirely at night in deserted streets of the city. The film attempts to find images of London at night that reveal the presence of the past, or the presence of the dead, hinting at it’s concealed history. It is shot in deserted streets around the east end of London and Docklands as there is a feeling of an echoic city filled with shadows that manifests itself there at night.
It is composed of long static viewpoints, each shot slowly unfolding in time as if by looking long enough it’s secrets will be revealed. Shooting on 16mm film, using long exposures and timelapse techniques together give the film an intensity of colour and a sense of fleeting or historical time. The drab, deserted streets are transformed as they appear in hyper-real colour, devoid of traffic and human activity.
