In this episode, films by Jen Martin, Chris Bowman and Andy Mackinnon have been collected to reframe the film as a visual poem. At the seat of industrial decline, more space is being made for creative industries; these three films adopt poetic techniques to trace changing rhythms across the self, the city and further afield.
The erosion of everything continued, a slow psychological avalanche that was carrying them downwards. – J.G. Ballard, High Rise, 1975.
