City Life – The Electric Canvas

Using the ornate architecture of Customs House as a skeleton, an elaborate city within a city is created. As the morning sun rises, the buildings, streets, overpasses and infrastructure emerge out of Customs House, like an organism coming to life. Hundreds of people, cars, buses and trains traverse the city. Mercurial weather patterns, traffic lights flashing, horns honking, the everyday hustle and bustle.

Delving deeper into the heart of this amazing organism, the city’s inhabitants go about their daily lives. Connected and disconnected. Individual and collective. Mundane routine gives way to magic, and the city offers up unexpected and delightful surprises.  Day meets night, the shadows lengthen and so the pulse, colour and mood of the city changes as it winds down.
