Filmed at Blackfriars Station, Platform sychronises three screens of commuters in the station creating a visual puzzle of movement. A natural tempo occurs as the characters within the footage choreograph themselves creating ebbs and flows and prescribing the timeline. The same passengers move back and forth along the platform, characters with similar clothes and gestures pass and a constant tannoy makes repeat announcements.
As viewers we become immersed in the moving image only to be abruptly pulled out of this environment and back into our own sense of the present, feelings of disorientation and anxiety ensue. We re-engage with the animation in our attempt and need to clarify the images as they pass in front of us.
