Description

The site-specific installation captures the passing of time, tracing the patterns of sunlight and shadow cast by the iron window frames of the building across the floors of the empty dormitories. The Rev. J.T. Becher, the founder of the Workhouse said that ‘An empty workhouse is a successful one’ and the film plays with nothingness and emptiness - the absence of the people the building was designed to hold - and the slow passing of light and time which recalls the lives of the inmates and people who have lived and worked at the Workhouse.
