Platform

Platform ProRes Dec17 5 widescreen 3 (0.01.59.06)

Platform 6 was shot over one evening on the North London Line.

Platform is a series of films and installations created using a high speed camera modified to allow the synthesis later of stereo 3D. I have been developing this technique for a couple of years. The process (along with a few other tweaks) stretches time and transforms a mundane everyday situation into a mysterious world of living 3D statues, revealing within it hidden beauties inaccessible to those present at the time.

Each piece is different in content and tone depending on what is happening on the day or evening in question. A hot summers’ day will yield something very different from Halloween. Choice of lens and exposure also add a ‘look’. Though the process is more than a little random (which is challenging and fun) it requires some skill and vision to mould into finished pieces later.

To me the pieces suggest a transience to our lives whilst paradoxically hinting at something more enduring.

Currently upgrading the project to 4k. Watch this space.
