The Waterfront

03:57 HD video with sound, looped, 2016.


The Waterfront is shot in an area of stalled development sites on the Forth estuary, north of Edinburgh. Glitching, translucent residents wander around these landscapes, going unnoticed by passers by. Occasionally, other parallel layers to the landscape are revealed – fragmented glimpses into imagined doorways and flickering silhouettes of non-existent buildings.
