I made this video as part of my ongoing engagement with the hidden layers of urban places. This one explores ideas about collective memory.
I have composited time-lapse footage of the State Library of Queensland with footage from the Brisbane Writers Festival which is held here annually.
For a few moments the veil lifts, the usual pattern fades, the billboard becomes a screen for the projection of layered collective memories of events which have happened here.
“Real time” is de-saturated and becomes erratic outside the frame of remembered time.
