What’s Going On Here? 2001


At the time of this Year of The Artist residency Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester was undergoing a dramatic redevelopment.

Sequences and incidents from archive films shot in Piccadilly, many of them concerned with the circulation of traffic, were re-shot on video from the same positions in buildings or on the street. Occupants and workers at those locations were interviewed for the sound track. The video was shown in the transport centre in Piccadilly Gardens.
