Andrew Cross: VIA

Friday 8 - Saturday 9 December 2007

 

Commissioned film and projection on Milton Keynes Fly Tower.

 

Made for the outdoors, this film by Andrew Cross contradicts the high-speed reality of contemporary road travel by reducing the experience, quite literally, to walking pace. A single-take video of the journey from London to Milton Keynes slowed down to twelve hours, VIA converts the rapid glances and everyday repetition of the road into extended moments of speculation and perceptual dislocation. VIA is a reminder of the transport basis upon which Milton Keynes was created and hints at the Roman origins that link these two locations.
