The 00 Scale movies are a series of experiments making use of an extended 'dolly track' set around my studio in Deptford and other locations. I am able to bring in various elements and effects as the camera scans the localised environment. Although these are often working environments, I am interested in developing a series of scale dependent narratives that project these situations into a surrealist context.
There are dream-like sequences that recall what it would be like to be one of the many small animals that I frequently see scurrying around the space - especially at night. These is also a sense of continuous movement, a 'perpetuum mobile' within the movies, as if the exploration of these spaces is a sequence of unstoppable motions. In some of the movies I intervene in the form of giant feet or hands. Sometimes this is to correct some derailment or other disaster or alternatively to give pursuit to the camera.
