“An investigation into a place” was made in collaboration with childhood friends and town planners and recreates a housing project in a studio.
The trees are newly planted and children have hung colourful plastic bags from their branches. The soundtrack was provided by AC/DC guitarist Angus Young, and its disjointed rhythm adds to the poetry of the memory.
