This film is an enquiry into the affective emotions we experience when in the presence of monumental urban infrastructure. It focuses specifically on the concrete road bridge which traverses the Breydon Water Estuary - situated on the outskirts of Great Yarmouth. The cave-like environment, sacred water element, and massive supporting megalithic-like columns, can be viewed as archetypal symbols of the collective unconscious. The car tires traversing the road joins, on the trunk road above, create a soundscape of base frequency thuds, similar in affect to shamanic drumming - which has been used in indigenous cultures to induce non-ordinary states of consciousness. These visual and sonic qualia create an hypnotic atmosphere, that invokes deep unconscious resonances.
