JACK WORMELL A Roost for Every Bird 5:42mins
A friend of mine likes to make sweeping statements about London. He sometimes says things like: “In South London you can’t get a good kebab”; implying that you can only get a decent kebab in North or East London because of the large Turkish and Greek communities in the area. Then he had a really good kebab in Camberwell. Features sheep and skyscrapers.
EMMA CHARLES After the Bell 3:48mins
After The Bell is a financial term for activity by traders occurring after the close of the stock market. Used here to refer to the night workers that enter these spaces after trading has stopped.
Based in the financial district of London, this video is an investigation of the unseen and the marginal. Concentrating on the maintenance staff working within a stockbroker company, it explores the relationship between two types of ‘invisibility’ – that of the night workers and the environment in which they work, which functions on the basis of abstract monetary exchange which has itself, no physical entity. Hundreds of workers enter these spaces at night, momentarily crossing paths with a trader working late. They are fundamental to the everyday functioning of a global economy yet their presence is only recognised under the cover of darkness.
