Concrete Liaisons’, took place in December 2006 during an event which started in the afternoon and ran through sixteen consecutive nights, replacing the original flood-lighting installed in 1937.  This image shows the Malet Street elevation featuring the image of  “Chancing the Circle” in a projection which runs 35m up the building.  As the number of lighted windows diminished, the building slowly became engulfed by the darkness and dominated by the projections.

In order to contextualise the work, Jane Boyd made a documentary film from a nearby roof top with Paul Cox on camera and Richard Stoner on sound.  In sound and image, the film brings together the sight of the spectacular local cityscape and the sonotope or soundscape of Underground worlds directly beneath.  The film was completed in 2007 – view an abbreviated version of it here.
