Reeperbahn, 2003
video still, 4mins

A tracking shot of the Reeperbahn (Hamburg) is back-projected onto a large glass shop front on the Caledonian Road (London). Included in the frame of Reeperbahn are cars and buses passing in front of the projected street in Germany; the flashing light of the mini-cab office directly adjacent to the shop; and the words ‘Pleasure Garden’ (which are reflected from the sign on the other side of the road). As the video progresses, these layers of representation compete for attention and interrupt any sense of a single narrative, journey or flow.
