The concept of movement through the city is different for individuals.
'A Drifting Up' explores 60 seconds of movement through an underground tunnel in Sydney for a physically disabled person. The film's protagonist measures the architecture around them through the study of surface, height data, speed and distance; constantly changing layers of space to be negotiated.
The film creates a narrative about spatial experience to investigate how a physically disabled character might analyse material space. It reveals some inherent contradictions and constraints of 'accessible' public space in the city, and offers another rhythm to city life; another perspective for urban users and designers alike.
