A series of interconnected sequences leading from one thought to another.
this work is part of a number of specially developed works for this new art venue which opened in early December 2016.

The artwork pays respect to the elegant contemporary architecture designed by BVN design. While sitting in harmony with the new building Night Watch calls upon the knowledge of the previous building on this siteā€”the old H.Pole Printery, founded in 1915.

| The screen consists of 7 animated evening sequences sourced from After Effects sequences. Role: After Effects Animation, Photography and Show Scripting. Credits: Robyn Backen with Ian Hobbs. UAP fabrication.
