Vantage Point 2

Using a mixture of static and moving single perspectives to capture the complex geometry of the transport system nestling above the almost still and natural beauty of the canal walk below to explore how our perception of familiar and unfamiliar territory can alter within differing frameworks.

It compares a tram journey from the city centres of Sheffield and Brussels to an outlying terminus within a parallel time frame. The work is presented on different screens to allow for different everyday experiences and journeys captured on iphone to emerge as a singular experience. The soundtrack features field airborne and structural recordings as well as electronically manipulated sounds.

Vantage Point 2 is an artwork by Ron Wright, commissioned and shown as part of the Terminus exhibition. The video can be viewed here.
