Man on an escalator

 

 

 

I went to Canary Wharf just to see if I could get some inspiration. In my mind, I wasn’t too sure what I was looking for but I wanted to go to this place because I thought it would be the best to see a lot of business workers. To see if there is a robotic atmosphere in a busy business area.

I was just filming people coming and going from there day to day near the tube. What came into my mind after watching a video in a weekly session how the artist filmed very low to the ground due to restrictions of what could be shown, I thought this was a fascinating idea. It then allows for the identity not to be shown. On the escalator I filmed looking down at the man in front who had his briefcase. I thought this was a way to develop the robotic nature of the everyday routine.
