Description
The leaves of small wild plants, growing along the verge where the south west coastal path enters the industrial area on the outskirts of Plymouth, were printed onto the emulsion of colour reversal film, using household bleach. The sound design originates from the wind blowing across the sign at the entrance to a trade estate at dusk.
