PLATFORM 5

Client

Commissioned by Nexus, transport operators for the North East, and unveiled at Sunderland Station, this 144m long piece presents a virtual platform filled with passengers shadows within a glass block wall. The 3m tall glass block wall in the underground train station has been turned into a large low-resolution video matrix (755×15 pixels). Behind the wall is a disused platform, which long ago used to see passengers waiting for trains. Now the tracks are long gone and the old platform is hidden from view, we have created ghostly characters that appear behind the glass wall opposite passengers waiting for the trains.
